Art is part of our lives, from the monuments in our communities, to the fashions we wear and the media images we take in, to the exhibits on display in museums and galleries. It permeates our daily life. But why do we study art? How do we talk about Art?
Living with Art helps students see art in everyday life by fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of art. Taking a step further, Getlein equips students with the tools neccessary to analyze, digest, and uphold a life-long enthusiasm for art.

About the Author
Mark Getlein arrived in New York to pursue advanced music studies at the Juilliard School, but he quickly became equally fascinated by the city's vibrant downtown art scene and magnificent museum collections. For a decade or so he led an interesting but precarious life as a pianist and painter. As a writer and development editor, he has helped to create a series of ground-breaking college textbooks in art and literature, including Art History (Abrams, 1995), A History of Art in Africa (Abrams, 2001), The HarperCollins World Reader, The Longman Anthology of British Literature, and The Longman Anthology of World Literature. This is his fourth edition as author of Living with Art.
