4.0 out of 5 stars A constant help. 17 Jan 2010
I started my Art History and Theory degree over three years ago and have now graduated with a 1st. And I can say that this text was consistently helpful throughout my studdies. There is always something to look back over whether it be a specific chapter or just a few pages. But an essential and easy to read book for any art history/theory or visual culture undergrads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good extra for Art History students! 2 Jun 2012
By Lily
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another set book for an Open University module, written for them too and follows a216 really well. I found it really good because they provide a little summary before each chapter or the actual article, which is handy for any learner (not just long distance!). Worthwhile investment, you won't get through OU courses like A216 without it.
