Summary: For courses in Art History, World Art, Art Appreciation.
Marilyn Stokstad offers students the most student-friendly, contextual, and inclusive art history survey.
Based on the more than forty years that Marilyn Stokstad has been introducing the history of art to students and to the public, she found that the first goal of an introductory course should be to nurture an educated, enthusiastic public for the arts. She firmly believes that students an...show mored lay readers can and should enjoy their introduction to art history. Only then will they learn to appreciate art as the most tangible creation of the human imagination.
The most popular choice for the one-semester survey market, Art: A Brief History is a condensation of her best-seller, Art History.
How do you integrate global coverage and an inclusive point of view into your course? The global coverage throughout introduces students to the cultural ancestry of many ethnic groups and treats non-Western art on its own terms:
NEW! Coverage of the art of Korea and Cambodia as been added to the Asian chapters. Allows students to experience the art of other cultures.
NEW! Even greater depth has been added to the coverage of work by women and minorities. Additions include works by Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, and Henry Tanner, which enables students to experience art from different cultures and perspectives.
NEW! Strengthened treatment of American art. Full chapter on Islamic art reviewed by Jonathan Bloom, one of the leading scholars in the field. Gives students material that has been expanded and updated, in response to recent political events and upgraded interest.
Canadian art coverage. Gives students a text that features Canadian art-the only text on the market to do so.
A more inclusive point of view. Covers decorative arts and other media neglected in other survey texts such as the Raphael tapestry, timber architecture at Borgund, Georgian silver, a Homer watercolor, Bauhaus silver, digital artist Jennifer Steinkamp and electronic art. Gives students a clear sense of the diversity of artistic production.
How do you get your students excited about Art?
Stokstad offers student-friendly pedagogy, including boxed features and maps:
Closer Look. Examines a single work of art in some detail and enables students to see the richness of art history.
NEW! Looking Back. Now at the end of every chapter, provide a review that includes an illustrated timeline and a narrative summary of the chapter.
Looking Forward. Illustrations and essays introduce each chapter and capture the imagination of students.
Elements of Architectur. -A close-up and detailed look at an important architectural topic, site, or building, with superb line drawings and diagrams.
NEW! Maps are now included in every chapter, improved for clarity and accuracy. Helps students with the material they find most difficult.
NEW! Improved and updated images. Throughout, black and white images have been replaced with color wherever possible and older reproductions of uncleaned or unrestored works have also been updated whenever new and improved images were available. In some instances, details have also been added to allow for closer inspection. Almost all of the art for this edition was re-obtained from the holding institution and reproduced according to the most exacting standards of quality.
NEW scholarship! Reflects the latest thinking and discoveries impacting the field of art history. For example, see the recreations of familiar masterworks such as the new "colorful" Augustus of Prima Porta. Makes students aware of the dynamic nature of the discipline.
NEW! More images with vivid, human interest content (prehistoric clay image of a man and woman); domestic scenes (Egyptian family): and secular architecture (Chinese house model; Castle at Dover; Medici Palace).
Balances formalist analysis with contextual art history to support the needs of a diverse and fast-changing student population-Treats art history within the essential contexts of history, geography, sociology, politics, religion, and other arts being made at the time. Gives students a broader understanding and appreciation of art; enables instructors to have a wide variety of subject matter.
Reflection of the expertise, suggestions, criticisms, and contributions of a distinguished team of scholars and educators. Provides students with an exceptionally accurate text.
Many short, boxed, and often illustrated essays. Cover such topics as related ideas and facts, patronage, criticism, and iconography. Gives students the opportunity to explore interesting aspects of topics and artworks, allowing them to delve more deeply into the many dimensions of art history.
