Great beginner starting point
This text covers what you consider traditional art but also encompasses art from a wide variety of styles, peoples, and concepts. As a beginning art student, I found information that I needed, plus extras which expanded my knowledge and learning.
It's a great book to have around for leisure reading, too!
