This is all done through stimulating discussions on the elements, media, methods, content, composition, and style of art. Along with discussions on the purpose of art (Ch. 1-9), a separate Chapter (18) takes a look at art beyond Europe and the U.S. and examines art from all around the world. The history of art is contained chronologically in the second part of the book, (Ch. 10-17).Hide synopsis
I have covered only some of the material in this book and I am slowly going through the rest. It is like chewing a good piece of pie or your favorite meal well cooked... This book has a very contemporary look & feel and yet historical data is present to take the reader back to appreciate all flavors of ART. I wish it were more lengthy.
