Summary: Art Across Time is a comprehensive art history text that engages the mind of the reader by considering the place of images within the cultures that create them, even as it engages the eye with fabulous color reproductions that are two- and three-times the size of comparable images in other textbooks. Broadening the scope of her popular one-volume History of Western Art, Adams has integrated "Windows on the World" sections throughout the text ...show more to address the art, artists, and cultures of societies the world over. Furthermore, she has expanded the number of artists and artworks discussed to provide a fuller picture of western art for a full-year course. Maps, timelines, "materials and methods" boxes, literary excerpts, and artist biographies offer a multi-dimensional look at each period. These additions, combined with an approach that stresses current scholarship and methodologies, result in a vivid account of the history of art that will inform and entertain students.

Features:

  • Superior Writing and Pedagogy: Adams's conversational style is a breath of fresh air in a market dominated by dry, encyclopedic texts. Boxes and call-outs covering materials and techniques, historical asides, literary excerpts and more give students insight into the stories behind the art.
  • Better & Larger Reproductions: Art across Time has the largest percentage of color images on the art history survey market. They are not postage-size images--characteristic of the encyclopedic approach--the images are reproduced at two to three times the size of those in other books. The result? Students get a better appreciation of each piece.
  • Art in Context: The text places art in its cultural context, explaining how and why images were created. Biographical information is included and the differing methodologies of art history are discussed throughout.
  • Integrated World Art: Instead of segregating the art of non-Western cultures into their own exhaustive chapters, Adams integrates the discussion throughout the text in 'Windows on the World' sections. In keeping with the theme of the text, coverage is informative, but not exhaustive.
  • More and Better Coverage of Women: Not just tokenism! Art across Time meaningfully addresses the contributions of women to the history of art.
