31/10/16.Presenting art history as an essential part of the development of
humankind, this book offers an authoritative, balanced and enlightening
account, ranging from a statuette carved in central Europe some 30,000
years ago to the video art of the 1990s. The volume covers painting,
mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture and photography.
Textiles, coins, pottery, enamels, gold and silver are also included.
The scope is international, encompassing the arts of Asia, Africa and
Oceania as well as Europe and the Americas.
A World History of Art
explores the purpose and meaning of art, at times challenging
conventional ideas about 'progress' and aesthetic enjoyment. It shows
how art can give pleasure, but also deepen our self-knowledge, sharpen
our awareness of our own and other religious beliefs and enlarge our
understanding of alternative ways of life.
