Art History by Marilyn Stokstad and Michael Cothren brings the history of art to life for a new generation. It is global in scope, inclusive in its coverage, and warm and welcoming in tone. The guiding vision of the text is that art history survey courses should be filled with equal delight, enjoyment and learning, while fostering an enthusiastic and educated public for the visual arts.

The 6th Edition offers expanded global coverage, particularly the chapters addressing South and Southeast Asia and Africa. An updated chapter on contemporary art better reflects recent trends in the art world. Updated images and the addition of many new works enhance the narrative and keep the text up to date.
