I used the beginning of this book for my Art of Asia class and found it very helpful. The diction is not complicated so one is able to quickly read through the passages and get the information down.

This book was so inspiring to me that I ended up majoring in art history in college.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This book was so inspiring to me that I ended up majoring in art history in college. The ultimate "useless" major perhaps, but I have a secure job and a real appreciation for mankind after learning the beauty they are capable of, so maybe not so useless? Anyway the book is wonderful because it so so well-written.

My art history professor recommended we purchase an older edition essentially it has the same information as the newer edition except for some minor things and coloring of images. The textbook was easy to read and understand, I had already purchased volume I for my previous art history course and now it was required that I purchased volume II. The condition of the book was obviously used, but in a good to average condition. I found some notes on a paper inside the book with I found to be helpful and nice to be surprised with some useful notes by someone else. It provides a well understanding of the different style period and historical background, I can see myself later on referring back to the book for review. It is a good book and pretty cheap considering the newer versions out there.

This is what they consider "good" condition. Received the book today, and I just want it noted that the condition is less than good. It's such a big textbook, required for class, that I'm afraid the cover isn't going to stay in tact through December.

College students be advised -- this is a facsimile exact copy of the hardcopy text (15e) -- more like a PDF of the textbook, which is key because the page numbers and layout are identical to the hard copy version. Only drawback is that some images are not reproduced due to copyright limitations, and I wish there was a more intelligent system of hyperlinks included for vocab, artist and place names, etc.

Been using this book for 5 years now with my AP students. It is thorough and easy to read. I can't say that it's always a "fun" journey, but compared to other texts I've read, it packs a ton of useful contextual information in very digestable parts. Several of my students have told me that they've learned more about world history from this book and class than any of their other history classes combined! The images are of exceptional quality with excellent supplemental information in each chapter. The timeline fold out is great, but I've never really checked out the accompanied CD. If I had my drothers, I would drop a few 20th century artists and add a few others, i.e., Pierre Bonnard, Ad Reinhardt, Richard Diebenkorn Richard Estes, Beth Murray and Sean Scully to name a few. Considering that this is not the latest edition, it is a bit pricey new, but good used versions seem to show up on here at pretty affordable rates.

I bought this as a textbook for an Art History class. Clear, concise, informative and READABLE text. Every other art history text I've used was dry reading, not so with this one. The photos are sharp, colorful, and well-explained in the captions. Highly recommend!

Though I purchased the paperback and not the hardbound edition for my art history class, I am not disappointed. The pictures and the binding are great, and the text is straightforward. Family members not taking the art history class have enjoyed reading it, as well. This was the required text for my class, but if you were just interested in the subject, this is an awesome book.

This is the second one I purchased as a used book. We keep one in the living room for easy access and I gave one to a budding performing artist as a gift. It's the best easy to follow art history for non expert. It's organized chronologically, with traditional major emphasis on European art and it covers also modern times, all the way to Luscious Freud or Francis Bacon or modern architecture.
After 4 years of nursing school and now attending art school I have seen a good amount of books. This book Gardner's Art through the ages is probably the only college text book other than my anatomy book I will keep.

The hard cover is manufactured like many older books I have. The pages are heavy stock with beautiful colored images on it. It comes with 2 silk binding bookmarks, which is fantastic for quick reference. I actually leave this book out on my coffee table for guests to look at, its that good.

If you need this book for class, you might just want to keep it when you are done with the class. The images are small on some pages. Like I said before the text is more inline with quick reference, like a coffee table book. One of my classes required that I make an outline of a chapter of any of our books. I chose this one and the outline I made, made logical sense.

I have spent many hours with this book and while not perfect it is a very well made book. No book today can compete with the internet as a source. Instead they must condense the points the class is trying to achieve; to that end this book does a fine job.

Yes the photos could be larger, yes you can find more information about a piece out on the web, that will always be the case as books go away and we go completely electronic. Until that time books are required for school and if you are required to get this text I cannot think of a better book to buy and keep.

Thank you for reading my review.
