Very informative, has shown me a whole new perspective on art after I thought I knew what it was about. I have always loved art history but only a specific genre, Impressionism (aside from Jackson Pollock). This textbook helped me discover new areas of art that I thought I would never have interest in and has changed what I believed about it.
let's be honest: i didn't read this for the fun of it. but i learned a lot i didn't know before i picked it up. was the writing good? i could hardly tell you. nice pictures, though. some of them, anyway. i prefer Volume I, to be honest.
Not actually on p.700 -- I have no idea what's on that page of the 13th Edition. I have the 8th Edition, which goes up to p.975 of actual text, and in this edition I'm approximately on p. 862, studying the Post-Impressionists through the German Expressionists.
