With a stated goal of encouraging people to experience art directly, Buser (art history, Allen R. Hite Institute, U. of Louisville) presents five different approaches to the study of art: theoretical, formal, technical, historical, and institutional. These approaches in turn ask what art is; describe visual elements such as line, color, and space; give a description of different art media and techniques such as painting, architecture, film; present a brief history of world art; and address the art market, galleries, museums, collectors, and other elements of the art world today. The book includes maps & timelines, numerous b&w and color reproductions, "at a glance" boxes, a glossary, and a bibliography. A CD-ROM accompanies the text, and additional trademarked resources for both students and instructors are listed as well. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
