GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY, VOLUME I provides you with a comprehensive, beautifully illustrated tour of the world's great artistic traditions! Easy to read and understand, the 15th edition of the most widely read art history book in the English language continues to evolve, providing a rich cultural backdrop for each of the covered periods and geographical locations, and incorporating new artists and art forms -- all reproduced according to the highest standards of clarity and color fidelity. A complete online learning environment, including all images and an eBook, also is available. The unique Scale feature will help you better visualize the actual size of the artworks shown in the book. The Big Picture overviews at the end of every chapter summarize the chapter's important concepts. I have taught Survey of Art using Gardner since 1974. The Kleiner versions are masterpieces. I find Art through the Ages to be head and shoulders above other survey texts in terms of its contextual treatment of the objects. Fred Kleiner's interest in explaining how and why objects functioned within their social, religious, political and funerary contexts effectively opens the door for further learning in the classroom.
