Art: A Visual History is the complete visual guide to Western art, now updated and repackaged in a themed slipcase.

How to tell Impressionism from Expressionism, a Degas from a Monet, early Medieval art from early Christian? Art: A Visual History explains it all — painting, sculpture, great artists, styles, and schools — and will help you answer the question, "What makes great art?"

Art: A Visual History includes:

   • More than 650 artists and all the major schools and movements, all arranged chronologically. 
   • Close-up focus on 22 masterpieces, from Ancient Greek sculpture to 1960s Pop Art. 
   • Well-known icons along with lesser-known gems — carefully chosen to illuminate the points made in the text. 
   • Features on major schools and movements to explore and explain their stylistic trademarks, characteristics, and favored subjects. 

Art: A Visual History is a knowledgeable, thought-provoking, and accessible tour of the creators of Western art.
