As an art history student I have read many an art history tome. They have ranged from sleep-inducing books written by my own professors, to badly-translated oeuvres from scholars across the Atlantic, to glorified picture books. However, I was very grateful to find that both Volume I and II of Janson's History of Art were written with a clarity unsurpassed by any other art book I've read, while retaining enough useful and surprisingly interesting information to cover at least two semester's worth of art history courses. For a student studying western art or simply any person interested in the subject, I strongly recommend purchasing this publication.

I got this for my art history class, and it was an amazing book! I'm so glad we got through every art period in the book. But I needded money for my next semester so I was forced to give this awesome book up =(. Highly recommend to any art lover.

I rent it for my art history survey 2.
I fell in love with this book since it talks more about contemporary art.
Once I graduate, I am definitely buying this book in new condition!

The descriptions in the text really help with understanding the context, subject matter, materials, etc. of the art works in this book.

This is a good book for my class and I rented it as a decent price. Wish I didn't have to carry it though. Lol
