BOOK EXCERPT:

A World History of Art is widely regarded as the most up-to-date and wide-ranging history ever published in a single volume. This new edition has been enlarged and redesigned giving it a more contemporary, 'open' look. The coverage of art has been expanded right into the twenty-first century, with the addition of 34 new images of contemporary art. Three new urban development boxes have been added on the ancient Greek, medieval and contemporary city. The coverage of African art has been rewritten and new images added to reflect current thinking. Elegantly and fluently written, the authors present art history as an essential part of the development of humankind, beginning their account with a 30,000-year old statuette and ending with art that is concerned with contemporary society's dependence on the spectacle. The volume covers painting, mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture and photography.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Is writing a world art history possible? Does the history of art as such even exist outside the Western tradition? Is it possible to consider the history of art in a way that is not fundamentally Eurocentric? In this highly readable and provocative book, David Carrier, a philosopher and art historian, does not attempt to write a world art history himself. Rather, he asks the question of how an art history of all cultures could be written—or whether it is even possible to do so. He also engages the political and moral issues raised by the idea of a multicultural art history. Focusing on a consideration of intersecting artistic traditions, Carrier negotiates the way meaning and understanding shift or are altered when a visual object from one culture, for example, is inserted into the visual tradition of another culture. A World Art History and Its Objects proposes the use of temporal narrative as a way to begin to understand a multicultural art history.

BOOK EXCERPT:

How does an artist’s interpretation of historical events alter our understanding of them? Kings, queens, presidents, and generals from Alexander the Great to Theodore Roosevelt have commissioned paintings, drawings, sculptures, and photographs of major events, and artists have responded to important moments with works that forever shape historical memory. The book deals with specific episodes, from the proclamation of the Code of Hammurabi to more recent events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It also deals with broader themes, such as the founding of states (Persia, Rome, the Chinese Empire, the United States) and war (Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People, Picasso’s Guernica). Here too are the great voyages of exploration, the industrial revolution, and much more. World history is vividly elucidated in these works of art.
