Description

Product Description

A concise introduction to the Western tradition in art.

 

Janson’s Basic History of Art provides readers with a beautifully illustrated and masterfully concise introduction to the Western tradition of art history. The text centers discussions around the object, its manufacture, and its visual character. It considers the contribution of the artist as an important part of the analysis.

 

This edition creates a narrative of how art has changed over time in the cultures that Europe has claimed as its patrimony and that Americans have claimed through their connection to Europe. Janson’s Basic History of Western Art continues to maintain separate chapters on the Northern European Renaissance, the Italian Renaissance, and the High Renaissance, with stylistic divisions for key periods of the modern era.

 

The 9th edition brings some exciting changes. For the first time, Janson’s Basic History of Western Art comes with MyArtsLab, which provides students with an interactive learning experience. Also, the text incorporates new learning objectives, graphics, and maps throughout. In response to reviewer’s requests, this new edition expands the coverage of Islamic art into its own chapter.

 

MyArtsLab is an integral part of the Davies et al, program. Key learning applications include, Art 21 and Studio Technique videos, 360-degree architectural panoramas and simulations and Closer Look tours.

For an art book, it does a poor job of presenting the works it talks about, but it does the history part well

Look, if you''re getting this book it is because you''re taking a class somewhere. Likely, you''re taking this class because you have to fulfill some oddball requirement that likely isn''t relevant to anything you care about in your degree path.

That doesn''t mean the book isn''t informative. If you actually take the time to read it, you will find that the "direction" of the book is pointing out the impact of geopolitical events on various art forms and styles and how events of the times dictated the direction of many artists. Often times the book will spend half a page talking about the intricacies of a specific piece of art but will NOT provide you anything to see what they are talking about. Its a shame really. This book is best used in conjunction with the internet so you can actually read up on some of their glossed over topics and see the works in detail that they attempt to describe but fail to show.

I needed this book for my Art 110 Class. It arrived on time but as for the product it was pretty worn, not unusable but definitely in ok to fair condition, lots of bends in the cover, also there was someone elses paperwork inside so i am guessing they dont have time to go through as understandable to get all the papers out. I half expected a better condition which is for the lower rating but so far no pages missing so that''s not bad and i can read it so it will serve its purpose.
