Editorial Reviews

Review

The superior quality of its photos and illustrations is one of the principal reasons that the Department of Art History has consistently used Art through the Ages. John Kenfield - Rutgers University

Three strengths of Gardner's are: the choice of imagery discussed; the quality and size of the images, and the clarity; and detail of the discussion which includes a strong balance between style and history. Angi Elsea Bourgeois - Mississippi State University

About the Author

Fred S. Kleiner (Ph.D., Columbia University) is the author or co-author of the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY, as well as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd editions of ART THROUGH THE AGES: A CONCISE HISTORY, and more than 100 publications on Greek and Roman art and architecture, including A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART, also published by Cengage. He has taught the art history survey course for more than three decades, first at the University of Virginia and, since 1978, at Boston University, where he is currently professor of art history and archaeology. From 1985 to 1998, he was editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Archaeology. Long acclaimed for his inspiring lectures and dedication to students, Professor Kleiner won Boston University's Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching, as well as the College Prize for Undergraduate Advising in the Humanities in 2002, and he is a two-time winner of the Distinguished Teaching Prize in the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program. In 2007, he was elected fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, and, in 2009, in recognition of lifetime achievement in publication and teaching, fellow of the Text and Academic Authors Association.

I used this Fall semester of 2011 for an art class, and this book was an enormous help. The pictures have great quality, and the book is loaded with a lot of useful information about each art piece. Great buy, and the buyback was about 70%!

I was very disappointed that this book did not include the DVD, which is what makes it the 'Enhanced Edition'. The condition of the book was also a little rougher than I expected. It did however arrive on time and was packed well.

I'm taking an Art History class at a university and this book was a way cheaper option than the one at my school's bookstore. It came to me in absolutely brand new condition and I am most pleased with my purchase.

I'm sure you don't really care about this review, since you either have to use this for a class or you don't, but I found it awful to read, particularly that individual sections were never given good context.

This book was okay, but the class was more exciting that went with it because the class made everything more interesting.
