Summary

An authoritative, balanced, and enlightening history of world art, this new Sixth Edition of The Visual Arts: A History is a worthy successor to the critically acclaimed earlier editions. From a 30,000-year-old statuette to digital art of the 21st century, this book offers the most up-to-date and wide-ranging history of art available in a single volume.

The Visual Arts is international in scope, encompassing the arts of Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, and the Americas. More than 1,400 superb illustrations, some 650 in full color, and the inclusion of architectural plans and maps, bring the artworks discussed to life. New contemporary art, as well as the latest discoveries and developments in prehistoric, non-Western, and Western art, and completely rewritten coverage of African art, make this new Sixth Edition a welcome addition to any library.
