Marilyn Stokstad and Michael W. Cothren engage students in a journey through the most significant eras in the history of art with another edition of Art History. The book is popular with instructors who truly want to persuade their students to develop a deeper passion for art and its origins. The brainchild of two renowned instructors, Art History, Volume 1 (4th Edition) ISBN 9780205744206 teaches art history in a fun way and aims to make its readers more appreciative of the visual arts. Continuing the tradition of earlier editions, this version combines a contextual and iconographic approach, focusing not only on written history, but also content of the works and images from different eras and periods of art history. The book relates visual arts to the entirety of the world, from geography to religion, politics and religion, and even philosophy and social life, making readers realize the interconnectedness of culture. The first volume of Art History (4th Edition) discusses historic eras from prehistoric art down to 14th century art in Europe. In between are other important milestones like the art of ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, Romans and Etruscans, as well as Jewish, Christian, and Byzantine art. The book also talks about Islamic, Asian (Chinese, Korean, and Japanese), early American, African, and medieval art in Europe. There is also a section on Romanesque and Gothic masterpieces. Author Marilyn Stokstad is a recognized art historian, museum curator, and teacher who has received a number of awards for her contributions in art education and history, while Michael W. Cothren is an experienced art history instructor at Swarthmore College, specializing in architecture as well as medieval, Islamic, and Roman art.
