Teach Yourself Art History
By Pooke, Grant and Whitham, Graham

Whether attending an art appreciation class, visiting a museum, or checking out a gallery exhibit, Teach Yourself Art History introduces neophytes to the fine art of interpreting paintings. Accessible text is accompanied by a 16-page color section and black-and-white images and illustrations. Together these words and visuals provide a framework for understanding the work of great artists in terms of form, social and historical contexts, representation of gender, psychology, and more. Additionally, the book provides a reference for key terms and definitions currently used by art connoisseurs.
