    • Basically what you'd expect when you hear the words "art history textbook": dry, boring, too many names and dates and not nearly enough political/social/historical context to explain why the particular works are significant. This really only covers Western art history and skims over the rest of the world with multiple cultures crammed in only a few chapters while the sections on Western movements (comprising 95% of the book) include a lot of unnecessary details (eg. gossip-y minutia about the ar [...]


    • I fail to understand why so little attention is given to non-European cultures in what is SUPPOSED to be a global-encompassing text.


    • Art History by Stokstad et al. is widely used as the textbook for introductory art history courses. From the start it’s clear how this is what both the two volume and the abridged single volume editions are meant for.Keeping that in mind, I’d say it’s not a bad textbook. As far as I can tell, all central concepts and production techniques from ancient to modern are being introduced and a few basics of art critique can be found hidden in between the pages as well.Considering the purpose, th [...]


    • I am gonna re-visit this review after I am thoroughly done with this book. For now, It is not a complete disaster but to the argus-eyed reader, it is majorly incomplete.More than half the book discusses Renaissance. Okay, we get it that the art was great. I personally love any Western art including Renaissance and the art that followed, until post modern absolutely-nonsense-unaesthetic-art took over the world. What I fail to comprehend is how could the author give such little breadth to Africa, [...]


    • As Stokstad is considered among the standard choices for art history surveys, I had to look at this text when the prospect of teaching such a course arose. I was dismayed. This book is a laundry list of what makes art history such a misunderstood and poorly respected discipline in the arts & sciences: lite on fact, heavy on subjective interpretations, superficial job of integrating the art she examines into its broader intellectual, political and spiritual contexts, and with a nice dollop of [...]


    • Fairly well written and interesting, for a textbook. This a la Carte edition comes with tons of study resources and online chapter audio which helped immensely when I was tired of reading. The content was a good mix of historical context, formal analysis and artist bio with enough dashes of gossip to keep things interesting. My only real complaint is that the non-European/ American art chapters are embarrassingly thin, although this seems more symptomatic of art history scholarship in general.


    • I probably could have made some money by selling these back to the school, but I love them so much. Some day my children will pull them off the bookshelf and ask me about artwork I won't remember. I'll make something up, it'll be grand.



    • I wish this had come out early enough for me to use it as a textbook in my Art History course. Easily readable, includes quite a few women artists.




    • okay for a first intro , lacking in technical details a lot of the time I guess. Should re-read the 2nd last chapter in the near future.
