Art History, Volume One - 3rd edition

Art History, Volume One (ISBN10: 0131743201; ISBN13: 9780131743205)
ISBN13: 978-0131743205
ISBN10: 0131743201


For two-semester courses in Art History, Global Art History, and for Introductory Art courses taught from a historical perspective.
Volume I covers Prehistoric Art in Europe through Fourteenth-Century Art in Europe.
Based on more than forty years that Marilyn Stokstad has been introducing the history of art to students and t moreo 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 and 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.
Marilyn Stokstad offers students the most student-friendly, contextual, and inclusive global art history survey.
Hallmark Features
How do you place the study of art history in context for your students?
  • Art History provides the essential context of the history of art — the text treats the arts and architecture within the essential context of history, geography, sociology, politics, religion and the other arts of the time. This enables students to see the origination of many major works.
How do you teach your students the language and technical aspects of art?
Boxed Essays in text:
  • Elements of Architecture boxes - help explain basic architectural forms and terminology, which can often be challenging subject matter for students.
  • Technique boxes allow students to explore how artworks were created, from prehistoric cave paintings to Renaissance frescoes to photographs.
  • The Object Speaks feature–Appears in each chapter to offer students an in-depth look at a single work of art.
  • Defining Art — ways in which art has been defined, categorized and evaluated
  • Science and Technology - how aspects of these subjects affect/inform art and art history
  • Religion and Mythology — info / concepts important to understanding religious art of certain cultures and time periods
  • Art and Its Context - brings an added layer of understanding about key contextual issues
How important is the text illustration program in the classroom?
  • Excellent illustration program– Art History has the most comprehensive, current and color-accurate collection of reproductions available in a survey text, with nearly 1400 illustrations, over 1000 in full-color, including new line drawings and cutaways commissioned specifically for this text.
Do you look for an inclusive text?
  • The contributions of diverse artists, media and subject matter is integrated into every chapter to show students the role of women in the arts. less
