In tune with the concerns of contemporary students and scholars, The Penguin Concise Dictionary of Art History draws on literature, history, psychology, geography, economics, and other disciplines to set key artistic advances in their cultural context. More than 1500 entries distill current scholarly findings in an engaging nonacademic voice. They encompass artists and theorists from Alberti to Judy Chicago to Zubaran; periods, styles, and movements from abstract expressionism to social realism; techniques and terms from action painting to x-radiography. Clear, cohesive, highly readable -- and completely cross-referenced, and with an extensive index -- this is the new generation reference art students, art buffs, and art browsers have been waiting for.
