De La Croix, Horst, Richard G. Tansey, and Diane Kirkpatrick. 1991. Gardner's Art Through the Ages. 9th ed. New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Inc.
Description: No art history student can get through a semester without Art Through the Ages. Chronicling the history of art from the earliest known cave paintings to postmodern architecture, as well as most major artists, works, and styles in between, this book is a must-have for those interested in understanding art in context. The book is a survey, and experts may notice the omission of more esoteric movements and artists. Regardless, this volume is an invaluable reference — especially since each edition of this classic improves noticeably in its coverage of non-Western art.
