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. Highlights of the 9th Edition include a new chapter discussing how digital technologies have transformed the arts as well as new works inspired by the most impactful events of recent years including the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements.
