DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The redesigned AP Art History Framework contains a challenging list of 250 required works of art. The units on Africa, West and Central Asia, South, East, and Southeast Asia, the Pacific, and Global Contemporary pose a particular problem. Existing textbooks and review books provide limited coverage that includes either short paragraphs or a list of bullet points. In addition, many AP Art History courses must rush to cover these works of art. Beyond the European Tradition with Global Contemporary is designed to provide concise, clear, and interesting narratives for each of the 84 works in Content Areas 6 - 10. Each narrative begins with a quarter page picture of the required image. The essay then describes the work's form, function, context, and content. In addition, each narrative concludes with a Making Connection feature linking the work to other required works. For example, the Making Connections feature for Travelers among Mountains and Streams compares Fan Kuan's use of shifting perspective with Bruegel's use of linear perspective in Hunters in the Snow. The volume concludes with 80 realistic multiple-choice practice questions testing key points about the works covered in this volume. A distinctive glossary provides concise definitions along with relevant examples from the required list of 250 works.

Art History A Very Short Introduction

Art History  A Very Short Introduction
Author: Dana Arnold
Release: 2004-01-22
Editor: OUP Oxford
Pages: 158
ISBN: 9780191577598
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This clear and concise new introduction examines all the major debates and issues using a wide range of well-known examples. It discusses the challenge of using verbal and written language to analyse a visual form. Dana Arnold also examines the many different ways of writing about art, and the changing boundaries of the subject of art history. Topics covered include the canon of Art History, the role of the gallery, 'blockbuster' exhibitions, the emergence of social histories of art (Feminist Art History or Queer Art History, for example), the impact of photography, and the development of Art History using artefacts such as the altarpiece, the portrait, or pornography, to explore social and cultural issues such as consumption, taste, religion, and politics. Importantly, this book explains how the traditional emphasis on periods and styles originates in western art production and can obscure other critical approaches, as well as art from non western cultures. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

ISBN: 0131455281
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In a very short time, Marilyn Stokstad's "Art History" has become the gold standard of introductions to the history of art. It has transformed the way the field of art history is perceived and experienced. Engaging, accessible, and, just as important, fun, "Art History" gives today's readers cultural and social context for art along with eloquent visual explanations of art's special qualities and particular vocabularies. Its animated and clear narrative tells the many-sided story of art, starting with the earliest prehistoric paintings and sculpture through today's wildly varying works in new mediums. In addition to offering an outstanding collection of color illustrations, "Art History" features glorious maps, chronologies, and scores of labeled line drawings and architectural plans. Special essays called "The Object Speaks" offer tantalizing insights on topics such as authenticity, patronage, and artistic intention. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest in scholarship, this Revised Second Edition features even more works in color and more newly cleaned or restored works. Many works of art are completely new to the book, including a wall painting from Chauvet cave, a page from the Morgan Library Picture Bible, Bronzino's "Allegory with Venus and Cupid," Claude Lorrain's "Embarkation of the Queen of Sheba," Rembrandt's "Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp," and Courbet's "The Stone Breakers," among many others. The addition of cutting edge contemporary artists Jeff Wall and Jennifer Steinkampt, and architect Daniel Libeskind bring present-day currency to the book's scope. More attention has been paid to the art and culture of the Islamic world and specifically the OttomanEmpire.
