Experience the history of art through analysis of the objects themselves
Revel® Janson's History of Art: The Western Tradition offers readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view. Throughout, the authors focus on the discussion on the object, its manufacture, and its visual character, and they consider the contribution of the artist as an important part of the analysis. Coverage is limited to the Western tradition, with a chapter on Islamic art and its relationship to Western art. Available for Fall 2021 classes, the Digital Update offers new learning objectives to help students navigate the rich history of Western art as well as expanded quizzes that let them review what they've learned.
