This book enables students to get the most from their art history course. In a clear and engaging style, Anne DAlleva empowers readers to approach their coursework with confidence and energy. The book introduces two basic art historical methods - formal analysis and contextual analysis - revealing how to use these methods in writing papers and in class discussion. The common strengths and weaknesses of an art history essay are highlighted by using real examples of written work, and at each stage of the writing process DAlleva offers valuable advice on developing an argument convincingly. Providing a fascinating view of the study of art history within its historical context, this book will be particularly helpful for those considering a career in this rewarding discipline.

  1. Utmärkt handbok på grundnivå.
    Karin, 30 december 2016

    Boken är pedagogisk, tydlig och ger en utmärkt grund för att själv fundera vidare. Läs gärna Metods and Theorirs in Art History av samma författare, som är lika bra som grund inför vidare studier.
