This best-selling exploration of traditional and contemporary art and artistic media focuses on art as seen from the artist's point of view, and presents readers—and viewers—with an exciting gallery of work. Art comes to life through down-to-earth language, and numerous quotations from the artists themselves help explain, in their own words, what they were trying to do. The book contains a four-part organization: Part I lays the foundation for seeing; Parts II and III views two-and three-dimensional art; and Part IV approaches art as it exists in time. An emphasis on aesthetics and art techniques explains in detail the philosophical foundations, elements, and principles of design, and technical considerations of each medium. Broad coverage of all media and traditional and contemporary art includes a section on outsider art and illustrates and discusses multicultural and non-Western art and art by women. Also covered are traditional and contemporary topics such as encaustic; fresco; wood engraving; computer art, graphic design, photography, Xerox and FAX art, video art; conceptual art, performance art, earthworks, installation pieces, and folk art. For anyone who appreciates—and wants to deepen that appreciation of—art.
