As fascinating as a real visit to the world's famous museums and architectural sites, GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY gives you a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated tour of the world's great artistic traditions plus all the study tools you need to excel in your art history course! Easy to read and understand, this 13th Edition of the most widely read history of art book in the English language is the only textbook that includes a unique "scale" feature (accompanying the book's photographs of paintings and other artworks) that will help you better visualize the actual size of the artworks shown in the book. You'll also find materials that will help you master the key topics quickly and help you study for your exams for example, "The Big Picture" overviews at the end of every chapter, a special global timeline, and ArtStudy Online (a free interactive study guide that includes flash cards of images and quizzes).

Kleiner (Ph.D., Columbia University) is the author or co-author of the first, second, and third editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A CONCISE HISTORY, as well as the tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY, and more than a hundred publications on Greek and Roman art and architecture, including A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART, also published by Wadsworth.
