For two-semester courses in Art
History, Global Art History, and for Introductory Art courses taught
from a historical perspective.
ART HISTORY provides students
with the most student-friendly, contextual, and inclusive art history
survey text on the market. These hallmarks make ART
HISTORY the choice for instructors who seek to actively engage their
students in the study of art.
This new edition of ART HISTORY
is the result of a happy and productive collaboration between two
scholar-teachers (Marilyn Stokstad and Michael Cothren) who share a
common vision that survey courses on the history of art should be filled
with as much enjoyment as erudition, and that they should foster an
enthusiastic, as well as an educated, public for the visual arts.
predecessors, this new edition seeks to balance formal and iconographic
analysis with contextual art history in order to craft interpretations
that will engage a diverse student population. Throughout the
text, the visual arts are treated as part of a larger world, in which
geography, politics, religion, economics, philosophy, social life, and
the other fine arts are related components of a vibrant and

Aug 24, 2009It's huge, very heavy. Had to read the whole book (except architecture) for a 1 year docent class. Great resource -- but too big to carry to a class!!
Oct 16, 2010This book delves deep into the history of art and covers, to varying degrees, all continents and most historical periods. With hundreds of pictures, including paintings, architecture and landscapes.
Jun 13, 2018I like this kind of books. I hope many people read this book instead of playing computer games for exemple.
May 08, 2010My son's textbook turns out to be a pleasure to me! This is Volume Two of a two volume set on art history. It covers the period from early Renaissance art in Europe to the post-1945 international avant-garde. In between is art from Europe and other parts of the world, including India, China, Japan, the Americas, the Pacific cultures, and Africa. The Introduction places the time frame in this book in context.
Oct 05, 2009If you want to read an Art History book read this one. Actually I have not only this book but she also broke it down into smaller sections which I used for my Asian Art class and really are more convenient. This book is huge and not one that you would carry around with you everywhere. That said though it is very well written and the vast amount of information given on a huge breadth of subjects is very impressive. The images are great quality and again amazing in their number. Not a dry read at If you want to read an Art History book read this one.

Dec 28, 2016This was my textbook for AP Art History in high school and it remains my go-to reference for anything art related other than the most modern pieces (I have the 1996 version so it obviously doesn't cover present day). At 16 years old the binding is broken, the pages are torn, and there are hundreds of post-its marking favorite pages. If you are looking for an in-depth beginners reference, this is still a wonderful book to pick up today.
May 16, 2007This book, this five lb. book was what I lugged around for four years. My lovely survey book. I would be lost without it. Filled with post-it notes and highlighter marks.
Dec 25, 2008I don't know why anyone would rate it a 2 or a 3. It's definitely a 5. :) Then again, we all have different tastes. This book is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the Arts and for those who simply want to expand their horizon.
Jul 26, 2012Finally done! But then I understood there should be better Art books... lol
Feb 12, 2013One of my favorite Art History books. A beautifully illustrated introduction of Art History throughout the ages.
Feb 18, 2008this is my art history book from college and i love it beucase it is so heavy it keeps my crappy bookshelf from target from falling over.
Mar 06, 2013I Love this book!
May 18, 2013There's only so much love you can show a book on Art History. She managed to keep it from getting completely dry, but by the end I was still struggling.
