A world history of art by Hugh Honour( Book )

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

"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
