An introduction to the properties, concepts, and meanings of Western art through a series of concise, specific explorations of 32 works of art or groups of related works—paintings, sculptures, and buildings from widely varying cultures and times. Mr Cole explains how art is made, how it functions in society, and how it embodies the ideas and ideals of the cultures in which it was produced. With 128 illustrations, 58 in full color. "A judicious, beautifully wrought overview....Cole's brief, incisive, richly informed, jargon-free essays are exemplary."—Paul Barolsky, Commonwealth Professor of Art History, University of Virginia.
