Description - Art in History by Larry Silver

Art in History provides an illuminating overview of humanity's long tradition of creation, from the earliest cave paintings to contemporary installations.By relating works of art -- primarily painting, sculpture, and graphics, but also major architectural monuments -- to the societies in which they were created, Dr. Silver intensifies the reader's understanding of humanity's most famous and enduring images. Each chapter surveys a historical era, presenting its major figures against a background of social forces that helped shape their creativity. Non-Western cultures are included as counterpoints, and a careful balance is established between long-acknowledged masters and those whose achievements have been recognized only recently.
