Review: American Art: History and CultureUser Review - Tina Gauthier - Goodreads
I have reviewed a few American Art History books for teaching the subject to high school students. This is the best book I have found for that purpose. It is very comprehensive in touching upon different styles, movements and artists and understandable to the average high school reader. Read full review
