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

75 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 3,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generously illustrated with over 1,370 photographs, architectural plans, and color maps, this highly regarded survey encompasses the arts of Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, and the Americas—covering painting, mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture and photography, and ranging from a statuette carved in central Europe some 30,000 years ago to video art of the 1990s. It delves into the purpose and meaning of art to show readers how art can deepen our self-knowledge, sharpen our awareness of our own and other religious beliefs, and enlarge our understanding of alternative ways of life. Divides material into five parts (Foundations of Art, Art and the World Religions, Sacred and Secular Art, The Making of the Modern World, and Twentieth-Century Art), with discussions on late Gothic art; 17th century Dutch landscape painting; Native American art; Far Eastern and African art; photography; women in art, and much more. Integrates boxes throughout that reflect on the full spectrum of factors which have conditioned artistic production at different times and in different parts of the world. Contains many new illustrations and photos, including the paintings in the Chauvet Cave in south-west France, and the late second-millennium BC figurative sculptures found at Sanxindui, China. All chapters include a handy timechart for easy reference. For art historians

A world history of art by Hugh Honour( Book )

161 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,138 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

The companion guide to Venice by Hugh Honour( Book )

48 editions published between 1965 and 1997 in English and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Venice and her attractions- San Marco, the Accademia, the Doges' Palace- have drawn such hordes of observers and commentators over the years that this most beautiful of cities has come to seem stale. Fortunately, Hugh Honour always has something fresh and incisive to say. He knows his subject exceptionally well, as a result this guide, with its winning blend of evocative detail and precise information, spurs the reader to investigate Venice's many elusive wonders. On first publication, Hugh Honour's 'Companion Guide to Venice' rapidly established itself as the one indispensable guide to the city and her people. With this new edition, he provides a thoroughly updated version of his classic book." --Back cover description
