Some brief overview of book

Art Theory: An Historical Introduction is a unique survey of Western thought about art from ancient times to the present. Provides a lucid and lively narrative geared to the needs of the general reader and beginning student. Covers the major periods of Western art history: Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the early modern period (Renaissance and Baroque), the Enlightenment, the nineteenth century, early twentieth-century modernism, and postmodernism.
