Features & benefits

Art History, 6th Edition is centred on six key learning objectives to facilitate student understanding. Upon completion of the course, students using this text should be able to:

  1. Identify the visual hallmarks of regional and period styles for formal, technical, and expressive qualities.
  2. Interpret the meaning of works of art from diverse cultures, periods, and locations based on their themes, subjects, and symbols.
  3. Relate artists and works of art to their cultural, economic, and political contexts.
  4. Apply the vocabulary and concepts used to discuss works of art, artists, and art history.
  5. Interpret art using appropriate art historical methods, such as observation and inductive reasoning.
  6. Select visual and textual evidence to support an argument or interpretation.

These learning objectives appear at the beginning of each chapter, tailored to the subject matter in that section of the book so that students will be continually reminded of their key goals as they read through the chapter.
