Summary

This best-selling exploration of traditional and contemporary art and artistic media focuses on art as seen from the artist's point of view , treating artistic techniques and introductory aesthetic principles. It is an engaging, clear, and concise presentation with a multi-cultural emphasis. The careful design of the illustrations, text, headings, timelines, and boxes enhances the relationship between text and illustrations. The book has a four-part organization--Part I lays the foundation for seeing; Parts II and III views two-and three-dimensional art; and Part IV approaches art as it exists in time. Topics cover a broad range of media and traditional and contemporary art, including installation; video and performance art; encaustic; fresco; wood engraving; earthworks; computers and art.
