Summary: For undergraduate courses in Art Appreciation, Humanities, and Studio Art.

This stimulating, fascinating and concise introduction to art, designed to stand alone or supplement courses in Art Appreciation, the Humanities and Studio Arts classes, contains a series of chapters covering a range of topics that will provide students with a basis for approaching art and enjoying it. The text serves to dispel some of the preconceptions students have about the visu moreal arts--assumptions they might make about a work based on their own experience. This text assumes no background in the arts, but does assume an interest in learning more about how to view art.

  • Comprehensive coverage--Features eight chapters on different aspects of the visual arts.
    • Allows students to examine themes, controversies, non-Western and Western art, formal elements of style, and basics such as perspective and technique.
  • Unique perspectives on art.
    • Enables students to examine art through various lenses such as iconography, Marxism, feminism, semiotics, and various controversies that surround art.
  • Over 132 illustrations--Features a range of examples from ancient to contemporary.
    • Stimulates students' interest, and encourages a deeper exploration of the subject.
  • Clear, concise language--Requires no previous knowledge of the arts.
    • Helps show students how pervasive the visual arts are in all our lives. less
