KIRKUS REVIEW

A one-volume survey of the history of art which, for young and old, provides a springboard for more intelligent appreciation and understanding of painting, primarily, but other forms of art as well,- architecture, sculpture, illumination, etc. Inevitably the author highlights the periods, the artists and their works, but one gets a sense of historic perspective, of continuous narrative following trends of development, punctuated by concentration of individual examples (with accompanying illustrations- 370 with 21 in color).
