I really did read this textbook cover to cover, for an AP Art History class. From ancient to modern - it gives a good summary. Not good for in-depth knowledge on specific topics.

This is the best textbook I ever had. Sadly, all the history I know comes from this book. I can't say if it is a good art-history book, since all the art-history I learned came from here, but I know it is very informative and interesting from 'the layman's perspective' (for lack of a less annoyin...

This was my college text book. The current editors (at the time) were my college professors. I've read this and re-read this countless times through my life time. Like all great history books there are newly discovered names every time you re-read it. Fabulous general reference.

I recently read a great book called, "The Art Dockuments" by author Carlton Davis. This a non-fiction book with a collection of stories about th...

Art Through the Ages was used during both of my Art History courses that I took in my undergraduate studio art program. I really enjoyed the sections of this book that we studied. It gives a broad, yet comprehensive, view about how art has progressed over time and the historical events that influ...
