HASH(0x9bacaf90) out of 5 stars Informative and Riveting 17 Aug. 2012
By nry204 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an art history student I have read many an art history tome. They have ranged from sleep-inducing books written by my own professors, to badly-translated oeuvres from scholars across the Atlantic, to glorified picture books. However, I was very grateful to find that both Volume I and II of Janson's History of Art were written with a clarity unsurpassed by any other art book I've read, while retaining enough useful and surprisingly interesting information to cover at least two semester's worth of art history courses. For a student studying western art or simply any person interested in the subject, I strongly recommend purchasing this publication.

HASH(0x9ba28258) out of 5 stars THE standard book 1 Dec. 2013

HASH(0x9be93f18) out of 5 stars Museum in a book! 24 July 2015
By Caleb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This textbook is a little pricey but well worth the cost! I purchased this for my Survey of Western Art 2 class and it is written so beautiful and filled with the most accurate images of all the art works. When searching on the internet for images of certain pieces you will often find the color is of very low quality and can be inaccurate to the original work. If I were to describe this I would say the images in the book are as high of a quality as if you were standing right in front of the sculpture or painting itself. Janson's History of Art is a wonderful series and would recommend to any novice Art Historian.
HASH(0x9ba1fb1c) out of 5 stars I only rent this book 8 Jun. 2014

I rent it for my art history survey 2.
I fell in love with this book since it talks more about contemporary art.
Once I graduate, I am definitely buying this book in new condition!
