Revel for Art History, Fifth Edition treats the visual arts as one component of a vibrant cultural landscape, which also includes politics, religion, economics, and more. Taking an inclusive approach that balances formal analysis with contextual art history, authors Marilyn Stokstad and Michael Cothren help students to recognize and appreciate the central role that art and architecture have played in human history. Born of the authors’ vision that survey courses should be filled with as much enjoyment as learning, Revel for Art History fosters an enthusiastic, as well as an educated, public for the visual arts.
