And I really think this is a book grown ups can enjoy too. My husband and I sat down with it during one of our date activities and used it as a frame of reference to discuss our own views on some of the artists and the merits of their works.
This book opens with a picture of prehistoric art from Lascaux, circa 15,000-13,000 BCE. So people have been making art for a very long, long time. It's not really possible to cover everything in a book of this nature, as it is there are 400 pages. I think it's a decent enough overview from the Western Civilization perspective. However, some pretty big groups get left out of this book...Asian artists, African artists, etc. and because I really think artisans from those groups have also changed the world, I felt their omission is what keeps this from being a 5 star book.
Cons: Majority of the book is classical/European/Renaissance art- if you enjoy more impressionism and/or 20th century art I would recommend a different book. This book also arrived damaged with a large tear down the front cover.
