This short book introduces the reader to the key concepts in art from ancient times to the present day. Unlike many previous publications, in which non-Western art is a mere add-on to the great artists and movements of the Western canon, this tells the story of art from a fresh perspective, integrating previously marginalised aspects of artistic creation into the principal narrative. The text focuses on illustrated examples, ranging from the iconic to the unusual, providing a stimulating and throught-provoking introduction to a complex and challenging subject. Concise and informative, the book is written in a clear, jargonfree style. While it is ideal for first-year students of art, art history and related subjects, it will also be invaluable for general readers wanting to know and understand more about art and culture.

  1. En bra bok
    Anna Maria Jochnick, 3 oktober 2017

    En bra bok för studier eller som ren läsning. Glad att den var en del av min kurslitteratur! Rekommenderar den för det jättebreda perpektivet i en pocketversion. Kommer nog ge bort den som julklapp!
