This book is great for my class at college.

While it's pricey, I think the quality (physical as well as content), scope, and size of this book make it a very good purchase.

The book is rich in information and most up-to-date with the latest information.

Having used this book in my 2002 Art history class, I can say without reservation that is is probably the best Art History book I have studied. A close second would be the History of Modern Art by Arnason. Countless times I have referred to this book for references to art for my blog and personal works of art. If this isn't you schools text book, it should be.

I've used an earlier edition when I was in high school and finally got around to purchasing this edition for myself. The editors have always done an excellent job with each addition. The book is rich in information and most up-to-date with the latest information. Each page has graphic elements, from several pictures or multiple diagrams. Though thick and heavy, it's great for the coffee table.

Jansen's History of Art is simply a beautiful book with all the information you need to get familiar with the world of art from the Paleolithic era till today. One short advice: if you're planning a long vacation/trip to the oversees while attending an online class (like myself), please make sure to buy the electronic version, because the book is huge, and extremely heavy!

This is a great art history reference book. I'm only through the first 8 or so chapters, but it is very well written, it's detailed, and the illustrations are great, fine color, line, and detail. It appears to be very sturdy and the paper stock is heavy. Of course, the quality and size of this book make it very, very heavy. You won't lug this tome to the museum as a handy reference source!. While it's pricey, I think the quality (physical as well as content), scope, and size of this book make it a very good purchase.

Bought this for my daughter for college art requirement. She liked it so well that she wanted to keep it instead of selling it at the end of semester. Lots of valuable information in here and examples by photo's.

Wonderful art text. But it is a text and there is as much reading as there is art. So if you only want the art, find other books.
