Summary

Art Historypresents a broad view of art from prehistory through the Gothic Age, it sympathetically and positively introduces the works of all artists. This includes women, artists of color, and the arts of other continents and regions, as well as those of Western Europe and the United States. Broad in scope and depth, this beautifully illustrated work features art from the following time periods and places: prehistoric art in Europe; ancient art of the Near East, Egypt, the Aegean, and Greece; Roman and Etruscan art; Jewish, early Christian, and Byzantine art; Islamic art; medieval art in Europe; Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance art; Baroque art; the rise of modern art; and the international Avant-Garde since 1945. Marilyn Stokstad has been introducing the history of art to students and to the public for more than forty years, nurturing an educated, enthusiastic audience for the arts. She firmly believes that everyone can and should enjoy their introduction to art history. Only then will they learn to appreciate art as the most tangible creation of the human imagination.
