Product Description:

A whirlwind tour of art through the ages! Beginning with prehistoric art and concluding with 21st-century art, this book covers over 100 artists from around the world and their unique styles. It is by no means your typical art textbook, as it is more of a "crash course in art history. The book incorporates more than 350 illustrations (half in full-color) and provides succinct biographical essays regarding the different artists and the styles they represent. There are also informative sidebars and timelines to give you an even greater insight into each period of art history covered. Art forms discussed include cave paintings, architecture, sculptures, paintings in many different mediums, pottery, photography, and much, much more. Specific artists are discussed briefly in each section as well. Nudity is present in a small percentage of the pictures. A visual, comprehensive overview for an older student to help them fully appreciate art in all forms. 222 pgs with index, pb. 3rd edition. ~ elise

Publisher Description:

This heavily illustrated crash course in art history is revised and updated from the second edition published in 2007, including a new chapter about recent artists and movements. Featuring succinct page-length essays, instructive sidebars, and more than 300 photographs, The Annotated Mona Lisa: A Crash Course in Art History from Prehistoric to the Present takes art education out of the realm of dreary textbooks, demystifies jargon and theory, and makes the history of art movements accessible to beginning art museum-goers even at a cursory reading.From Stonehenge to the Guggenheim and from African art to Warhol, more than 25,000 years of art is distilled into five sections (prehistoric and medieval, renaissance and baroque, the nineteenth century, modern art, and contemporary art) covering a little more than 230 pages.

I took college level Art History courses and I was impressed with this book It gives a comprehensive overview of Art from the beginning of time to present day It is easy to read and understand Warning to parents: there is nudity in it nothing a black marker or some white-out wouldn't fix I would recommend this book as a 1/2 high school credit I wish the book had questions for each section to draw out the student I wound up reading ahead and making my own study guide for my child
