The most widely read history of art in the English language for more than 80 years, GARDNER has built its stellar reputation on the inclusion of the most significant images and monuments, discussions of these images in their full historical and cultural context, reproductions of unsurpassed quality, scholarship that is up-to-date and deep, and more help for students and instructors than any other survey text. The 13th Edition adds to this heritage with new images and new full-color reconstructions, as well as a unique scale” feature that helps students visualize the size of each work.

Beautiful book March 31, 2011
The care that has gone into the writing and presentation of this textbook is amazing. It presents the history of art (and architecture) from the first cave paintings up until modern day. The online component ("ArtStudy Online") of this book is well worth utilizing, it has videos that expand upon the textbook topics, and high-quality zoomable images that feature relevant works of art the author couldn't squeeze into the book, plus easily accessible glossaries (with pronunciations) for every chapter.
