The Penguin Concise Dictionary of Art History presents a new perspective on art history. In keeping with today's students, who are interested in more than just the details of connoisseurship and provenance, it takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon literature, history, psychology, geography, economics, and other areas to set important artistic advances in a cultural context. With more than 1500 entries, ranging in length from 150 to 600 words, this is a concise yet highly readable work.
It also differs from similar references, which tend to be Eurocentric, by giving relatively more space to American art, artists, and architects; to the work of women artists; to sometimes controversial post-modern ideas; and to the words of the artists themselves, quoted in most of the major entries.
