9780155037533: Art Through the Ages

This introduction to the history of art shows art's powerful role in representing and even transforming the world views of varied cultures. In this revised edition, the narrative of the western and non-European traditions are combined to present a global history of art, highlighting the interactions between geographically distant and culturally distinct societies. Historical research is combined with attention to style, chronology, iconography, technique, function and context. Boxed essays focus on themes and issues across six broad categories: architectural basics; materials and techniques; written sources; religion and mythology; art and society and art in the news.

About the Author:

Fred S. Kleiner (Ph.D., Columbia University) is the author or co-author of the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY, as well as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A CONCISE HISTORY, and more than 100 publications on Greek and Roman art and architecture, including A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART, also published by Cengage. He has taught the art history survey course for more than three decades, first at the University of Virginia and, since 1978, at Boston University, where he is currently professor of art history and archaeology. From 1985 to 1998, he was editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Archaeology. Long acclaimed for his inspiring lectures and dedication to students, Professor Kleiner won Boston University's Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching, as well as the College Prize for Undergraduate Advising in the Humanities in 2002, and he is a two-time winner of the Distinguished Teaching Prize in the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program. In 2007, he was elected fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, and, in 2009, in recognition of lifetime achievement in publication and teaching, fellow of the Text and Academic Authors Association.

Christin J. Mamiya received her Ph.D. in art history from the University of California--Los Angeles, and is Professor of Art History at the University of Nebraska--Lincoln. A recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the Annis Chaikin Sorensen Award for Distinguished Teaching in the Humanities from the University of Nebraska in 2001, Professor Mamiya specializes in the areas of modern, postmodern, and Oceanic art. She has published a book on Pop art, as well as many articles, catalog essays, and book reviews. She is an active participant in the wider community as both a curator and lecturer.

Richard G. Tansey passed away before the publication of GARDNER'S WESTERN ART THROUGH THE AGES. However, his contributions to the book over that last thirty years are evident on every page and remain an enduring legacy even in this new presentation of the material. Professor Tansey received his Ph.D. from Harvard University and taught at Vassar College, the University of California--Los Angeles, Colorado College, and San Jose State University.

Review:

"I am a docent trainee at the San Diego Museum of Art - we are using Gardner's 11th Edition. The discovery of the Web site for research purposes has been invaluable. A real standard of excellence in this hi-tech world! Thank you."
