Book Description

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book.

Provide your students with an introduction to art that is inclusive and emphasizes critical thinking!


Henry Sayre’s art appreciation text, The World of Art, is an amazing introduction to the world of art. Students with little background in the arts routinely reach out to Henry to share how the text has influenced their lives. This is so meaningful because Henry’s inspiration for A World of Art was his own students. His students wanted to see themselves reflected in their textbook. Henry decided to write an art appreciation textbook that represented all artists, not just the Western canon found at that time in the other texts. He also created a text that fostered critical thinking through looking at, talking about, and questioning works of art for his students.


The result was A World of Art and the new seventh edition continues to build on those two themes- coverage of contemporary global art and a strong critical thinking framework throughout the text. This edition includes new ways for students to experience art with the new MyArtsLab, which includes ART 21 videos, Discovering Art simulations, Closer Look tours, and an eText of Writing about Art, also by Henry Sayre.


A better teaching and learning experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience— for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize Learning — The new MyArtsLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals.
  • Improve Critical Thinking — The author fosters critical thinking skills by integrating critical thinking based on learning objectives, and end-of-the-chapter “The Critical Process” features.
  • Engage Students — The new MyArtsLab Challenge is a fresh take on assessment offering a “game-like” atmosphere for students to master chapter material. Upon successful completion of each level, students unlock works of art to create their own personal gallery to share with their peers.
  • Support Instructors — New MyArtsLab, ClassPrep, Classroom Response System (CRS) In-Class Questions, Instructor’s Manual and Test Item File, MyTest, and sample syllabi are available.

Note: MyArtsLab does not come automatically packaged with this text. To purchase MyArtsLab, please visit or you can purchase a ValuePack of the text + MyArtsLab (at no additional cost): ValuePack ISBN-10: 0205901344 / ValuePack ISBN-13: 9780205901340

Very expensive book required for a college class. Fell apart within seven days. No chance to resell it. Save your money and buy the download.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality September 21, 2012
By Rob
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book new and have only used it a few times and the pages are coming loose from the bindings. Poor quality for how much you pay for the book, I would not expect it to be falling apart. So not only do I get to pay an outrageous price for the book in addition it will have no resale value for me to get some of my money back out of a book I will never again use.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste! January 15, 2013
By Linda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After spending way too much on this book to begin with, I couldn't even use it! The pages started falling out immediately and eventually whole sections fell out. The entire class had this problem. My teacher told us the publisher offered to buy back books that were purchased through the bookstore but they have not made that offer for those of us who purchased it online. This is ridiculous!
