From classical Greece to postmodernism, The Oxford History of Western Art is an authoritative and stimulating overview of the development of visual culture in the West over the last 2,700 years. Written by over 50 leading art historians from around the world, it takes a fresh look at how the history of art is presented and understood. This is not a simple, linear 'story' of art, but a rich series of stories. It covers the full spectrum of Western art-from painting to photography and from sculpture to interior design, and is an ideal introduction for students of art and architecture and for the general reader.
Not to be missed.
