I have taken and dropped the course before and the previous textbook was the standard dull affair. I have to say that I'm rather impressed by this book, enough so that I may not want to part with it at the end of the semester even though I could use the money.
It is aesthetically pleasing; it's sad how many art textbooks exist that aren't. The chapters are amazingly to-the-point, without needless repetition, summarizations, or end-of This is the textbook chosen for my Art Appreciation class. The chapters are amazingly to-the-point, without needless repetition, summarizations, or end-of-chapter questions. As a student, perhaps I might find such things of use, but unnecessary when the chapter itself is interesting enough that I don't immediately seek out a shortcut.
Each chapter is filled with beautiful photographs of artwork, and the ocassional artist spotlight. Jul 27, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. Art class required reading and I have to say it was very well written, engaging, and made this business major enjoy learning and reading about art. I have worked with a lot of art history books, but I had to try to teach from this one.
It has no order to it. It just flops whatever it wants in with whatever else. As an adjunct instructor I did not appreciate how it was structured at all. I'm being generous with that. And let's not forget all disciplines are required to take it. Some ppl aren't art ppl. So why not start with cave drawings and build Not my favorite for instruction or reading.
I read this book for my art appreciation class, I actually liked this book, it had some good information in it. Though, I didn't use it that much. May 15, Calliope van Poe rated it it was ok. Its a text book so it isnt as entertaining as some books might be.
However i did enjoy it and how they had sidebars about artists and movements that were key. Pictures of the art was great. Feb 24, Intentional Goddess rated it it was ok Shelves: springbooklist.
This is one of the ones the gets looped into school. Sep 19, Lydia rated it really liked it. This book gives a condensed but great history of art. I enjoyed reading and taking the class. Skipped a few chapters not assigned. I didn't completely finish the book, I sold it before I finished the last 2 chapters.
I found the book to be very interesting and informative. Read this textbook for a college Art History class.
Some of the chapters drag on with so much info doping. However this was still a good art book with clear images. Aug 06, Aziza Kibibi rated it liked it. I had to used this book for my Art class at EssexCountyCollege. The pictures weren't large enough. For a book that is meant to help you appreciate art, the illustrations were gloomy, unclear and lacked any vibrance whatsoever. I'm taking an art history class with George Wythe College via distance studies and I found this book to supplement my studies.
I really like the information on technical art philosphy. I've always wanted to understand how an art critic looks at a painting of sculpture. I, too, had to read this for school. My appreciation for art has grown from "this is really cool" to paragraph descriptions!
I love art and I have thoroughly enjoyed this class. I gave it a four because i had to read it for school. View 1 comment. Excellent overview of techniques, styles, and periods. Jul 23, Abrar rated it it was amazing Shelves: daily-use.
A splendid treasure that I will not find it anywhere! This was actually a very good read, for a textbook. Information presented in a concise and easily absorbed manner.
Great pictures throughout! Jan 02, Joanne rated it really liked it. Excellent basic text for art history, especially for someone unfamiliar with the area of study.
