The Annotated Mona Lisa
A Crash course in Art History from Prehistoric to ì Post-Modern
This second edition of Carol Strickland's The Annotated ì Mona Lisa: A Crash Course in Art History from Prehistoric to ì Post-Modern offers an illustrated tutorial of prehistoric ì to post-modern art from cave paintings to video art installations ì to digital and Internet media.
Featuring succinct page-length essays, instructive sidebars, ì and more than 300 photographs, The Annotated Mona Lisa: A ì Crash Course in Art History from Prehistoric to ì Post-Modern takes art history out of the realm of dreary ì textbooks, demystifies jargon and theory, and makes art ì accessible-even at a cursory reading.
From Stonehenge to the Guggenheim and from Holbein to Warhol, ì more than 25,000 years of art is distilled into five sections ì covering a little more than 200 pages.
