The visual arts : a history by Hugh Honour( Book )

161 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 2,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A"Since its first publication this book has been hailed as the most comprehensive history of art ever published in a single volume. Presenting art history as an essential part of the development of humankind, it offers an authoritative, balanced, and enlightening account, ranging from a statuette carved in central Europe some 30,000 years ago to the digital, video, and installation art of the new millennium. The volume covers painting, mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture, and photography. Textiles, coins, pottery, enamels, gold, and silver are also included. The scope is international, encompassing the arts of Asia, Africa, and Oceania as well as Europe and the Americas. This Revised Seventh Edition expands the original coverage by embracing new developments in archaeology and art historical research, and in particular contemporary art historian Michael Archer has greatly expanded the authors' discussion of the art world over the past two decades, providing a new perspective on the latest developments shaping our cultural history. The insight, elegance, and fluency that the authors bring to their text are complemented by 1459 superb illustrations, many of which are now in color

"For more than thirty years, The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture has been a standard work of reference." "Encyclopedic in breadth, it describes key individuals, styles, movements, materials, and terms from Aalto to Zakharov, from the Acropolis to ziggurats. Major entries range up to several pages in length and include cross references and bibliographies for further reading." "Now renamed The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, this new edition has been completely reworked by John Fleming and Hugh Honour. All entries have been updated as necessary, many new ones have been written, and much greater prominence has now been given to landscape architecture, one of the most dynamic and important growth fields of recent years."--Jacket
