History of Modern Art Volume I (7th Edition) Reviews
I saw this book in a museum (the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA) and had the chance to peruse the museum's copy (which was of the previous edition) before buying it. After just spending 15-20 minutes with it in the museum, I became convinced that it was worth the hefty price. Now, having purchased the most recent edition, I am glad I did. It is an expensive book, but worth the price, in my opinion, as it contains a wealth of information and a wealth of art.
Arnason goes into great detail for each art genre that existed during the 20th (and now 21st) century. It is a more engaging and explanative art history book than many others I have encountered. She writes in a fashion that is completely understandable yet very intelligent, rather than the strictly scholarly speak I have found in other volumes.
If you are taking a class and you have to buy this book, I know you don't have a choice, but this is one you will enjoy and possible not want to sell back. Well written with color pictures and stories of the artists, as well as information on architects and buildings.
Bought for class, but really easy to read and love the photos. Nice book.
I used the Sixth Edition in an art history class where the current Seventh Edition was the designated text. There was very little difference between the two--like a small change in the numbering of the chapters. I saved probably more than $100 by using the earlier text. The book had been used, but was in very good condition. And it's a keeper which I will no doubt refer to in the future.
This is a pretty amazing treatment of the arts including photography and architecture from the late 19th century though the 20th to the early years of this century. It's not an easy read although well worth it. In addition to treatments of various works of art and artists the authors discuss their role inn the society of the time and in the larger scope of art.
