Summary

Appropriate for one-semester art history surveys or historically-focused art appreciation classes, "A History of Western Art," Revised Fourth Edition, features additional color which provides students with a greater understanding of the works of art. Focusing on the Western canon of art history, the text presents a compelling chronological narrative from prehistory to the present. A non-Western supplement, "World Views: Topics in Non-Western Art," addresses specific areas of non-Western art and augments the Western chronology by illustrating moments of thematic relationships and cross-cultural contact. "World Views" is available at a discount when packaged with "A History of Western Art,"
