Three points of criticism. First, there was too much information to take in from each chapter. I found it was best to read a little at a time. Second, I found it difficult to understand the charts. I had to rearrange them on separate sheets of paper to be able to fully comprehend them. Third, while it really did not bother me that the artwork was in black and white, I think that for those that have not been exposed to the art world it would have been beneficial to include a section of colored prints. I would recommend this book for a classroom setting. To me the benefits of how it is written far outweigh the problems.
