Art History Portable Edition, Book 1 Ancient Art and Book 2: Medieval Art


Art History Portable Edition, Book 1 Ancient Art and Book 2: Medieval Art by Marilyn Stokstad

Books 1 and 2 cover Prehistoric Art in Europe through Fourteenth-Century Art in Europe. Art History Portable Edition by Marilyn Stokstad offers exactly the same content as Art History, Third Edition but in smaller individual booklets for maximum student portability. Based on more than forty years that Marilyn Stokstad has been introducing the history of art to students and to the public, she found that the first goal of an introductory course should be to nurture an educated, enthusiastic public for the arts. She firmly believes that students and lay readers can and should enjoy their introduction to art history. Only then will they learn to appreciate art as the most tangible creation of the human imagination. Marilyn Stokstad offers students the most student-friendly, contextual, and inclusive western art history survey.
