Gardner’s Art through the Ages: The Western Perspective, Volume 2
Featuring unique NEW study tools for students and dynamic NEW lecture resources for instructors, the 13th Edition of GARDNER’S ART THROUGH THE AGES: THE WESTERN PERSPECTIVE takes this brilliant bestseller to new heights in addressing the challenges of today’s classroom. The most widely read history of art in the English language for more than 80 years, GARDNER has built its stellar reputation on the inclusion of the most significant images and monuments, discussions of these images in their full historical and cultural context, reproductions of unsurpassed quality, scholarship that is up-to-date and deep, and more help for students and instructors than any other survey text. The 13th Edition adds to this heritage with new images and new full-color reconstructions, as well as a unique scale feature that helps students visualize the size of each work. Students will also benefit from the clarity that only a book written by a single author can provide. New to this edition are the three levels of review including extended image captions, The Big Picture overviews at the end of every chapter, and a special global timeline. ArtStudy Online is a free interactive study guide that includes image flashcards and quizzes to help students master the material quickly. Dynamic lecture tools -- including a digital library with a full zoom and side-by-side comparison capability and the exciting Google Earth technology -- will save instructors time in preparing for class and personalizing their lectures.

Review: Gardner's Art Through the Ages, Volume 1: The Western PerspectiveUser Review - Jayme - Goodreads
My college book for Art History 104 and a greatly done piece of nonfiction, I highly recommend it if you're a connoisseur of art and it's history. Very interesting and the pieces are well chosen for the different movements, especially in the Late Antiquity and Islamic Art sections. Read full review
