    About The Work

    Beginning with the most recent artistic developments of the twenty-first century and tracing the thread of art history back in time, Art in Time offers a new perspective on the styles and movements of art. Tracked on a timeline of historical and art historical events that provides social and political context, each style or movement is defined by representative artworks, and its place in the history of art illuminated by concise and engaging texts written by specialists in each period. 

    This unique presentation of the 150 most important artistic styles and movements allows you to explore the family tree of art history and to come away with an understanding of how art is informed by its time and its predecessors, adapting and changing the way we see, think and interpret the world around us. Spanning not just the Western tradition but also styles and movements from India, China, Japan, Latin America and Africa, Art in Time shows the way styles and movements intersect and influence each other throughout time. 

    Historical photographs and documentary ephemera bring each period to life. A preface, comprehensive glossary and index make this a complete resource for anyone curious about how art became what it today.
