The most student-friendly, contextual, and inclusive art history survey text on the market.

For single term courses in Art History or Art Appreciation taught from a historical perspective with coverage of non-Western material.

Art: A Brief History provides a combination of formal analysis and contextual art history designed to engage a diverse student population. Co-authors Marilyn Stokstad and Michael Cothren—both scholars as well as teachers—share a common vision that survey courses should be filled with as much enjoyment as erudition and should foster an enthusiastic, as well as an educated, public for the visual arts.
