In addition, the text's illustration program is now available to adopting instructors in digital format via The Image Vault--McGraw-Hill's new Web-based presentation manager.

Art across Time combines sound scholarship, lavish visuals, and a lively narrative to provide students with a comprehensive, accessible, and engaging introduction to Art History. Popular with majors and non-majors alike, the text offers readers more than a chronology of art by placing each work within the time-and-place context within which it was created.

Encountering and interpreting a work of art in context offers the reader the richest possible experience of it. Large scale and high quality visual reproductions of artworks are often presented from multiple perspectives to enhance visual appeal and allow students to view details and elements of composition with greater ease. A thoughtful pedagogical approach helps students consider what they are viewing.

Excellent Art book July 31, 2011
This was a required textbook for several of my art history courses. I found it easy to read, accurate and a great reference. It gives a really good feel for the times it covers. The sender sent the textbook as expected and I received it on time. The textbook was new as was described and the price was reasonable. Overall, I am very satisfied with the product.
