Details: Product Description Experience the wonders of human creativity in GARDNER'S ART THROUGH THE AGES: A GLOBAL HISTORY, 16th Edition! A grand tour of the world�s most celebrated works from the Stone Age to the modern era, this introductory text has been a classroom favorite for 85 years. Every chapter includes rich and compelling discussions of pivotal art works, periods and geographies in art history, as well as new artists and art forms. Of course, the bold illustrations on the pages look almost as good as the real thing, especially when you use the unique Scale feature to imagine a work�s stature from the artist�s point of view. And to keep your course success in focus, the text offers Quick Review Captions and Big Picture Overviews, as well as an optional ebook that enables you to zoom in on fine details of paintings, sculptures, and priceless art forms of all kinds. Review "I have found that Gardner�s Art Through the Ages has always provided the best contextual information... In particular I thought the section on Locke and Newton and the Philosophies was very useful." "I have taught with Janson and Stokstad as well. Gardner is hands down better." �MindTap assignments are tied to different works of art, and take students to a virtual museum where they can zoom in. The flashcards are so much more dynamic than an image on a flat text. Students are so inundated with media that having a textbook with flat images doesn�t do anything for them. When you can turn something 360 degrees and zoom in, you often get a better view than you would in real life.� About the Author Fred S.
