"Artist and Audience is a fresh introduction to the art world and all its aspects: the people who are active in that world, the many kinds of works that are created, the sensations and ideas we receive from those works, and the ways of life art has transmitted across many times and places. The book is divided into five parts. In Part I we discover the main roles people play in the art world, how those roles interact, the galleries and museums where art is seen, and the common subject categories and their traditional meanings. In Part II the reader begins to build interpretive skills by analyzing the elements of art and the principles of design. In Part III the various media, from drawing and computer art to bronze casting and oil painting, are described. Part IV surveys the vast field of applied design in architecture, city planning, interiors, clothing, ceramics, metalwork, and industrial design. Part V is a selective history of world art that concentrates on styles that have the most contemporary relevance, including ancient American, Asian, African, Classical and Hellenistic Greek, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque." - preface.
