Reviews

"One of the most outstanding differences [between Gardner's and other art history texts] is the accessibility of the text. The text . . . is very streamlined. It simplifies the material . . . and the organization is more logical." "I love the addition of the scales -- very helpful. I like the way that Gardner walks students through a visual analysis after first elaborating on the historical context. I think this is the textbook's greatest strength."
