Summary

Art Historypresents a broad view of art from prehistory through the Gothic Age, it sympathetically and positively introduces the works of all artists. This includes women, artists of color, and the arts of other continents and regions, as well as those of Western Europe and the United States. Broad in scope and depth, this beautifully illustrated work features art from the following time periods and places: prehistory; art of the ancients (Near East, Egypt, the Aegean, Greece, Etruscan, and Roman); early Christian, Jewish, and Byzantine art; Islamic art; early Medieval European art; Romanesque art, and Gothic art. Marilyn Stokstad has been introducing the history of art to students and to the public for more than forty years, nurturing an educated, enthusiastic audience for the arts. She firmly believes that everyone can and should enjoy their introduction to art history. Only then will they learn to appreciate art as the most tangible creation of the human imagination.
