Dr. Kleiner earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University.


"I have taught with Janson and Stokstad as well. Gardner is hands down better."
"MindTap assignments are tied to different works of art, and take students to a virtual museum where they can zoom in. The flashcards are so much more dynamic than an image on a flat text. Students are so inundated with media that having a textbook with flat images doesn't do anything for them. When you can turn something 360 degrees and zoom in, you often get a better view than you would in real life."
"I have found that Gardner's Art Through the Ages has always provided the best contextual information... In particular I thought the section on Locke and Newton and the Philosophies was very useful."
