Laurie Schneider Adams

Softcover | 12.95 x 2.29 x 19.81 cm | 240 pp

Oneworld Publications | 2012 | 9781851688531

From Stone Age statuettes to twenty first-century video art, Laurie Schneider Adams unravels the extraordinary story of Western art in this fast-paced introduction. Reining in the isms' that often bog down the subject, Adams instead brings to the fore the works themselves, with a comprehensive selection that includes such iconic pieces as Botticelli's Birth of Venus, Pollock's Convergence, and many more.

With a detailed exploration of the controversies and debates that are as much a part of art history as the works themselves, Adams combines an engaging narrative with the basics of art theory. Complemented with colour illustrations and a glossary, Art: A Beginner's Guide is an essential resource for every budding art critic.                                 
"Clear, genuinely Informative, and likely to stimulate discussion.
An excellent introductory text on art, its history, and its place in social life" Richard Woodfield - Honorany Senior Research Fellow in Art History at the Universities of Birmingham and Glasgow

"in remarkably clear and precise prose, Adams sets the story of art, how it arose, and what its uses are." Mary Wiseman - Professor Emerita of Philosophy at Brooklyn College and The Graduate School, City University of New York
