Format: Hardcover
In the dim and distant past I remember watching the Channel Four television series `Art of the Western World' fronted by Michael Wood. This book, published in 1989, was linked to the series and considers the enormous breadth of the subject under consideration through eighteen chapters, each written by an acknowledged expert. Each chapter is illustrated in colour and b/w with a total of 300 and 200 plates, respectively.

The chapters are `Greek Art' by Sir John Boardman [25 pages]; `Roman Art', Richard Brilliant [25]; `The Early Middle Ages', Paul Crossley [37]; `Gothic', William Clark [25]; `The Early Renaissance in Italy', John White [29]; `The Early Renaissance in the North', Catherine Reynolds [29]; `The High Renaissance in Rome', A. Richard Taylor [25]; `The High Renaissance in Venice', David Rosand [23]; `Italy, France and Austria in the 17th Century', Jeremy Wood [25]; `Spain and The Netherlands in the 17th Century', Ivan Gaskell [27]; `The Age of Reason' [25] and `The Age of Passion' [19], both by Robin Middleton; `Realism and Impressionism`, John House [25]; `Post-Impressionism', Griselda Pollock [23]; `Alienation and Innovation; 1900-1918' [23] and `Between Utopia and Crisis; 1918-1939' [21], both by Christopher Green and `The Last Moderns' [25] and `Post-Modernism; Within and Beyond the Frame' [25], both by Rosalind Kraus.

There are Suggestions for Further Reading, a Glossary, a List of Plates and an Index. The illustration on the front jacket is Leonardo's "Virgin and Child with St Anne", 1508-10.

I was given this book as an 18th birthday present in 1990 and it helped me get through university essays and exams. Not only does it have marvellous reproductions of amazing paintings, sculptures, buildings etc. but it has in-depth essays about the cultures and politic pressures that produced these works of art. I wonder what would get into the book now and how they would write about the last two decades!
