You can truly teach yourself the basics about anything. This text is a great place to start with art history. I have created an Artbook filled with information and now I'm ready to apply what I've learned from this text to my studies at museums around the city!

El libro perfecto para que cualquier persona de cualquier ámbito pueda entender. Es un repaso bastante general, fácil de leer y que sirve muy bien como una introducción a la historia del arte y de sus teorías.

A good basic coverage of different theories that critiques, philosophers, and artists use to contextualize art.
