Art History, Volume 2 (4th Edition) by Marilyn Stokstad and Michael W. Cothren is one of the most respected references on the subject, and is suitable for both art history majors and students taking up the course as an elective. Because it is short but concise, students are able to grasp quickly grasp the most important highlights throughout the different centuries and are able to recognize the most distinctive art forms that continue to influence contemporary artists. Art history has been traditionally perceived as the academic study of the style and historical development of objects of art, and this book successfully brings it down to a more relatable level without sacrificing comprehensiveness and accuracy. Instructors appreciate this textbook because of it encourages classroom discussion, making it much easier to engage students into studying subjects such as European 14th century art, 15th century northern European art, and 15th century Italian renaissance art. Authors Marilyn Stokstad and Michael W. Cothren also provide an in-depth look at the art of south and southeast Asia after 1200, Japanese art after 1333, and Chinese and Korean art after 1279 to emphasize significant artists and art movements, and how they affected those regions. Art History, Volume 2 (4th Edition) - ISBN 978020574421 explores the art of pacific cultures, Africa, and the Americas, and provides readers a comprehensive look at contemporary art in the international scene. Overall, the book relates art to culture, to religion, and to life. It is a successful attempt to cover the history of art in an enjoyable manner that makes students enthusiastic to learn otherwise difficult topics. It uses both iconography and traditional analysis to ensure that learners from different learning backgrounds can appreciate the subject.
