Nineteenth Century Art: A Critical History
Adopted at over four hundred colleges and universities since its first publication in 1994, this book has established itself as the most popular and highly regarded textbook in the field. It embraces many aspects of the new, revised art history (its attention to issues of class and gender; its critiques of racism and Eurocentrism), but it also emphasizes the remarkable vitality and subversiveness that constitute the legacy of the best nineteenth-century art.
The third edition incorporates new chapters on design and architecture; increased coverage of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and Naturalism in Germany; and a new discussion of the Vienna Secession and the challenges to Academic painting in Russia.
