A World of Art fosters the critical thinking and visual literacy skills you need to understand art from around the globe. Noted author and educator Henry Sayre teaches you how to ask the right questions about the visual world that surrounds us, and to then respond meaningfully to the complexity of that world.

The 9th Edition includes a new chapter on how digital technologies have transformed the arts. Other highlights include new works inspired by the most impactful events of recent years such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements. A new chapter on Digital Media discusses how digital technologies have transformed photography as a practice and impacted our understanding of artistic space and global culture.
