    1. This book is small, so it's hard to appreciate the full scope of the art images. It does provide a lot of pertinent information on artists, time periods, and the art itself. Wonderful art history guide.

    2. Art A World History is a great, and informational book about the different and many time periods of art in the world. The book covers a vast amount of art periods in time, and describes the motive, and thought process of a lot of famous artists, and I think my favorite era of art is 20th century art, especially Picasso and Salvador Dali.

    4. an excellent pick-up when you have 10 minutes book you can read from cover to cover. i did. fascinating stuff, great pictures, a tiny collection of the world's greatest art, artists, and art movements, ordered chronologically and thematically. but touched just the right notes of smart, concise, and pretty.

    5. Enjoyable and interesting book, but the pages are small, and so the photos of the art works are small, and I found it hard to appreciate them as much as I wanted to.

    6. My birthday present last year. I love it and am taking my time through it. Will compare to Jansen's Short History of Art and Sister Wendy when I am done with them all.
