Laurie Schneider Adams

A History of Western Art, Revised, 4th Edition (Brown and Benchmark, 1994 / trade edition Abrams, 1996; McGraw-Hill, 2000, 2004, 2008)

Appropriate for one-semester art history surveys or historically-focused art appreciation classes, this revised fourth edition of A History of Western Art focuses on the Western canon of art history in its chronological narrative of art from prehistory to the present. New features include images with improved architectural views; introductions to the methodologies of art history; context essays and technique commentaries; chapter-ending timelines; “Beyond the West” essays; and an online learning center that offers Internet-based resources for students and faculty. Digital images from the illustration program in The Image Vault, McGraw-Hill's new web-based presentation manager, are available to adopting instructors for presentations (no Internet access required), burning to a CD-ROM, or embedding in course Web pages. The eleven-chapter supplement, World Views: Topics in Non-Western Art, is a lavishly illustrated text that is available for only a few dollars more when packaged with A History of Western Art. Laurie Schneider Adams is a professor of art history at John Jay and the Graduate Center.
