Publisher Comments:

In the mid 1920s a teacher at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago had a vision to provide students and instructors with a textbook that would introduce them to the artistic legacy of not only Europe, but of the entire globe. In 1926, Harcourt Brace and Company published that vision — Art through the Ages. Since that time, Helen Gardner's vision has been the leader in educating students about the artistic legacy of the world. For the past 75 years, Art through the Ages has defined the introductory art history course. The intention of this classic, in Helen Gardner's words, has been "to introduce the reader to certain phases of art, architecture, painting, sculpture, and the minor arts from the remote days of the glacial age in Europe, through successive civilizations of the Near East, Europe, America, and the Orient, to the twentieth century." Now, as we begin a new millennium, we do so with the eleventh edition. This text is more accessible and easier to read for students, but does not compromise the richness of the Gardner tradition.

Author of more than a hundred publications on classical art and architecture, he also served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Archaeology from 1985-1998. He has taught the art history survey course for more than a quarter century at the University of Virginia and at Boston University, where he is currently Professor of Art History and Archaeology. Long recognized for his inspiring lectures and devotion to students, Professor Kleiner won Boston University's prestigious Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching as well as the College Prize for Undergraduate Advising in the Humanities in 2002.Christin J. Mamiya received her Ph.D. in art history from the University of California--Los Angeles, and is Professor of Art History at the University of Nebraska--Lincoln. A recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the Annis Chaikin Sorensen Award for Distinguished Teaching in the Humanities from the University of Nebraska in 2001, Professor Mamiya specializes in the areas of modern, postmodern, and Oceanic art. She has published a book on Pop art, as well as many articles, catalog essays, and book reviews. She is an active participant in the wider community as both a curator and lecturer.Richard G. Tansey passed away before the publication of GARDNER'S WESTERN ART THROUGH THE AGES. However, his contributions to the book over that last thirty years are evident on every page and remain an enduring legacy even in this new presentation of the material. Professor Tansey received his Ph.D. from Harvard University and taught at Vassar College, the University of California--Los Angeles, Colorado College, and San Jose State University.
