Pearson; 5th edition
In order to engage a wide range of student readers and participants, the fifth edition of Art History (PDF) maintains a balance between formal analysis and contextual art history. The authors Michael Cothren and Marilyn Stokstad, both of whom are academics as well as educators, have a shared vision that survey courses ought to be filled with as much enjoyment as learning, and that they ought to foster a public that is both educated and passionate about the visual arts. They believe that this is the best way to accomplish these goals.
This version is the most thorough and robust learning program available, making it ideal for assessing student progress and enhancing the likelihood of students accomplishing the outcomes and goals of the art history survey course they are enrolled in. The textbook not only addresses the four overarching goals of the survey course, but the new MyArtsLab also further develops and supports these outcomes and skills with industry-leading learning tools such as personalized study plans for every art student and multimedia assets that are tailored to address different abilities and learning styles. These assets include chapter audio, Closer Looks, student videos, architectural panoramas, and a great deal more. The textbook also addresses all four of the overarching goals of the survey course.
