Fundamentals of Art History, Paperback / softback Book

Fundamentals of Art History Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


This invaluable guide enables students to get the most from their art history course.

Written in an accessible style, the book introduces two basic art historical methods - formal analysis and contextual analysis.

In this new edition revising author Michael Cothren has extended the discussion on iconography and iconology, as well as adding discussions on the effects of the market and museums on art.

Greater emphasis is placed on the global and multicultural aspects of art creation and analysis with new images and more case studies.

There is more step-by-step guidance on how to use these methods to prepare for exams and write papers.
