Customers who viewed this item also viewed. I find ART THROUGH THE AGES to be head and shoulders above other survey texts in terms of its contextual treatment of the objects. Fred Kleiner's interest in explaining how and why objects functioned within their social, religious, political and funerary contexts effectively opens the door for further learning in the classroom. Fred S. Kleiner, P. has been professor of art history and archeology at Boston University for four decades.

Fred S. Dr. Kleiner earned his P. from Columbia University. The hard cover is manufactured like many older books I have. The pages are heavy stock with beautiful colored images on it.

No other book has received both awards in the same year.

Art through the Ages surveys the art of all periods from prehistory to the present, and worldwide, and examines how artworks of all kinds have always reflected the historical contexts in which they were created.

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.
My art history professor recommended we purchase an older edition essentially it has the same information as the newer edition except for some minor things and coloring of images. The textbook was easy to read and understand, I had already purchased volume I for my previous art history course and now it was required that I purchased volume II. The condition of the book was obviously used, but in a good to average condition. I found some notes on a paper inside the book with I found to be helpful and nice to be surprised with some useful notes by someone else. It provides a well understanding of the different style period and historical background, I can see myself later on referring back to the book for review. It is a good book and pretty cheap considering the newer versions out there.
This is what they consider "good" condition. Received the book today, and I just want it noted that the condition is less than good. It's such a big textbook, required for class, that I'm afraid the cover isn't going to stay in tact through December.
College students be advised -- this is a facsimile exact copy of the hardcopy text (15e) -- more like a PDF of the textbook, which is key because the page numbers and layout are identical to the hard copy version. Only drawback is that some images are not reproduced due to copyright limitations, and I wish there was a more intelligent system of hyperlinks included for vocab, artist and place names, etc.
Been using this book for 5 years now with my AP students. It is thorough and easy to read. I can't say that it's always a "fun" journey, but compared to other texts I've read, it packs a ton of useful contextual information in very digestable parts. Several of my students have told me that they've learned more about world history from this book and class than any of their other history classes combined! The images are of exceptional quality with excellent supplemental information in each chapter. The timeline fold out is great, but I've never really checked out the accompanied CD. If I had my drothers, I would drop a few 20th century artists and add a few others, i.e., Pierre Bonnard, Ad Reinhardt, Richard Diebenkorn Richard Estes, Beth Murray and Sean Scully to name a few. Considering that this is not the latest edition, it is a bit pricey new, but good used versions seem to show up on here at pretty affordable rates.
I bought this as a textbook for an Art History class. Clear, concise, informative and READABLE text. Every other art history text I've used was dry reading, not so with this one. The photos are sharp, colorful, and well-explained in the captions. Highly recommend!
Although the description for the Kindle version mentions the coursepack, it is not actually available for electronic versions of the book. In the Kindle version there were no page numbers associated with the subjects in the index, rendering it useless. No page numbers throughout the text, either. There were no navigational aids, so I had to flip page by page to get back to the table of contents. Reading the materials was cumbersome, because so little of the text appeared on the screen. I returned the Kindle version and bought the book instead. The book itself is beautifully illustrated with excellent content.
Though I purchased the paperback and not the hardbound edition for my art history class, I am not disappointed. The pictures and the binding are great, and the text is straightforward. Family members not taking the art history class have enjoyed reading it, as well. This was the required text for my class, but if you were just interested in the subject, this is an awesome book.
This provides an engaging, though, well written overview of the art of the civilizations it covers. The book is profusely illustrated with color photographs - at least one per page - that directly pertain to the objects and styles under consideration. I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the quality, scholarship and coverage of this book. I very highly recommend it.
