Art In The Western World: Book Promotion

2 Apr

 

A leader in its field since original publication in 1935, Art In The Western World retains in the fourth edition the outstanding features which have made the book so popular over the years. It has, at the same time, been completely redesigned and, where necessary, rewritten in accordance with the latest scholarship. The text has been enriched by new illustrations (there are 652 in all) and by reorganization of the sections on Post-Renaissance and on Italian Renaissance painting. Especially valuable additions are two exceedingly full and useful indexes, one for illustrations, the other, a general index.
