Summary

This new alternative, GARDNER'S WESTERN ART THROUGH THE AGES, offers instructors and students a brief, strictly Western approach to art history and retains all of the hallmark features of the market-leading Eleventh Edition in a concise 23-chapter format (also available in a two-volume split). Unique to books with a Western Art focus, the authors retain the chapter on Islam, providing students with insightful coverage of the Islamic tradition's impact on Western culture and art history. Featuring an outstanding art program with more color photos than any comparable art history survey textbook, the authors focus on the context and function of the role of art.
