“An excellent resource accessible to first-year and other students, but full of information to keep all readers interested through excellent writing and examples. It is beautifully illustrated and the electronic support is superb.”

    - William Ganis, Wells College

 

“Thorough, thought-provoking...Excellent imagery and great plans and photos of architecture.”

    - Elizabeth Olton, The University of Texas at San Antonio

 

“Stokstad/Cothren offers students access to knowledge about global art and its historical contexts while presenting information in a manner that will entice students to actually want to learn more.”

    - Eleanor Moseman, Colorado State University

 

“Comprehensive. Intelligent, yet accessible for students. Provides strong historical and geographical context and framework for the students, as well as detailed analyses of works of art from cultures around the globe.”

    - Deborah Haynes, University of Colorado, Boulder

 

“Good historical overview, good quality images (including those available for us digitally – thank you), excellent digital resources.”

    - Denise Budd, Bergen Community College

 

About the Author

Marilyn Stokstad, teacher, art historian, and museum curator, has been a leader in her field for decades and has served as president of the College Art Association and the International Center of Medieval Art. In 2002, she was awarded the lifetime achievement award from the National Women’s Caucus for Art. In 1997, she was awarded the Governor’s Arts Award as Kansas Art Educator of the Year and an honorary degree of doctor of humane letters by Carleton College. She is Judith Harris Murphy Distinguished Professor Emerita at the University of Kansas, Lawrence. She has also served in various leadership capacities at the University’s Spencer Museum of Art and is Consultative Curator of Medieval Art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri

 

Michael W. Cothren is Scheuer Family Professor of Humanities and Chair of the Department of Art at Swarthmore College, where he has also served as Coordinator of Medieval Studies and Chair of the Humanities Division.  Since arriving at Swarthmore in 1978, he has taught specialized courses on Medieval, Roman, and Islamic art and architecture, as well as seminars on visual narrative and on theory and method, but he particularly enjoys teaching the survey to Swarthmore beginners.  His research and publications focus on French Gothic art and architecture, most recently in a book on the stained glass of Beauvais Cathedral entitled Picturing the Celestial City.  Michael is a consultative curator at the Glencairn Museum in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. He has served on the board of the International Center of Medieval Art and as President both of the American Committee of the International Corpus Vitrearum and of his local school board. When not teaching, writing, or pursuing art historical research, you can find him hiking in the red rocks around Sedona, Arizona.

Had to buy it for class...... It is an interesting read but would have liked to get it on my own without needing it for class.
