Art History: the Basics has been written as a concise and accessible introduction for the interested general reader and the undergraduate approaching the subject for the first time at college or university.
It will give you answers to questions like: What is art and art history? What are the main methodologies used to understand art? How have ideas about form, sex and gender shaped representation? What connects art with psychoanalysis, semiotics and Marxism? How are globalisation and postmodernism changing art and art history?
