Overview

For courses in Art History Survey

A welcoming, inclusive, engaging, and global approach to art
Revel™ Art: A Brief History
brings the history of art to life for a new generation of students. The concise version of Stokstad and Cothren’s Art History is global in scope, inclusive in its coverage, and warm and welcoming in tone. The guiding vision of the text is that the teaching of art history survey courses should be filled with equal delight, enjoyment, and serious learning, while fostering an enthusiastic and educated public for the visual arts. The 7th Edition has been revised to reflect new discoveries, recent research, and fresh interpretive perspectives, as well as to address the changing needs of both students and educators.
