Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Illustrated in black and white, and printed on good paper, like all the volumes in the 'World of Art' series. Although Western art predominates, the 2500-plus entries include artists and terms from other traditions. Thoroughly updated in 1994. A special effort seems to have been made to include artists that might have been overlooked earlier because of their sex or colour. Excellent value. (Kirkus UK)
