Why A World of Art? Henry Sayre wrote the first edition of World of Art  because he wanted to use a text in his own art appreciation course that truly represented all artists, not just the Western canon found at that time in the other texts. He also wanted a text that fostered critical thinking through looking at, talking about, and questioning works of art for his students. We are proud to present the new sixth edition of World of Art, which further strengthens these two key aspects of the text while presenting hot topics like video and time-based media.

 

MyArtsLab. NEW to this edition is MyArtsLab, a dynamic website that provides a wealth of resources geared to meet the diverse learning needs of today’s students. A key feature, the Closer Look tours, let students experience and interact with works of art. MyArtsLab also includes a complete ebook for A World of Art, which is identical in content and design to the printed text, so students can have access to their text wherever and whenever they need it.
