Janson offered his readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view. The History of Art, said Janson, was not just a stringing together of historically significant objects, but the writing of a story about their interconnections, a history of styles and of stylistic change. Experience the new Janson and re-experience the history of art.

Rewritten and reorganized, thisnew edition weaves together the most recent scholarship, the most current thinking in art history, and the most innovative online supplements, including digital art library. Experience the new Janson and re-experience the history of art.

Long established as the classic and seminal introduction to art of the Western world, theEighth Edition of Janson's History of Art is groundbreaking. When Harry Abrams first published the History of Art in 1962, John F. Kennedy occupied the White House, and Andy Warhol was an emerging artist. Janson offered his readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view. The History of Art, said Janson, was not just a stringing together of historically significant objects, but the writing of a story about their interconnections, a history of styles and of stylistic change. Janson’s text focused on the visual and technical characteristics of the objects he discussed, often in extraordinarily eloquent language. Janson’s History of Art helped to establish the canon of art history for many generations of scholars.

The newEighth Edition, although revised to remain current with new discoveries and scholarship, continues to follow Janson’s lead in important ways: It is limited to the Western tradition, with a chapter on Islamic art and its relationship to Western art. It keeps the focus of the discussion on the object, its manufacture, and its visual character. It considers the contribution of the artist as an important part of the analysis. This edition maintains an organization along the lines established by Janson, with separate chapters on the Northern European Renaissance, the Italian Renaissance, the High Renaissance, and Baroque art, with stylistic divisions for key periods of the modern era. Also embedded in this edition is the narrative of how art has changed over time in the cultures that Europe has claimed as its patrimony.

It has good information and pictures, which is obviously important to the study of art. However, it doesn't have a lot in the way of study guide stuff at the end of every chapter. I would have liked review questions at the end and a list of key terms in each chapter for easier studying. I also don't know why glossaries are always in alphabetical order and not sorted by chapter. In this one, the glossary doesn't even indicate which chapter a term was from, and I had a geography book that did that in parenthesis after each term and I found that helpful (you could look at all your terms for a particular chapter without flipping back and forth in the book for each word that way.) Little additions like that would greatly improve students' ability to use this book as a study guide. I've also had issues where I've wanted to know more about certain topics but not gotten what I feel is a full story about a certain art piece, I think it's because this series has so much history to cover that it's missing some detail. I would call it an average textbook, but I think this shouldn't be the go-to art history book used by professors or anything. I have a feeling there's better stuff out there.

This was for someone else was a gift and she loves it she uses it for school work and she just loves it

This book is easy to read and informative. My only qualm with the book, is it's cover. I'm a
College student and although I've been trying very hard, the soft cover is getting
damaged in less than a month. It is curling & the cover is splitting in two at one corner.
This decreases it's reuse value. It is my opinion, for the price, the book should be hard

This book is a great resource if you are interested in art history and history. I feel like it does a great job of putting art in context of history. I have read several books from Janson and have had the same experience of all of them. I would reccommend these for students, instructors and enthusiasts.
