Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This very concise global art history text provides an accessible writing style and an affordable text for your students. Moreover, student access to the premium website, which features a study guide, flashcards, and more, comes with each new copy of the text at no extra charge.

Book News Annotation:

Fichner-Rathus' (College of New Jersey) introductory student text provides essential information on the chronology and context of art. Intended as a flexible framework for professors who may have their own cache of favorite materials, primary sources, and visual images, it is organized in a way to stimulate students interest and reflect the ways in which professors teach. Included throughout are exercises to compare and contrast two or more works of art, "a closer look" features delving into artists' personalities and other topics in greater depth, and "art tours" to seven major cities around the world. A companion website, correlated chapter by chapter with the book, provides additional multimedia resources as a supplement to the text. Oversize: 9x10.75".
