Following a comprehensive four-part structure, this introductory textbook covers all aspects of the visual arts, including: how art is designed- the visual language of art: how art is made – the media and processes, covering everything from painting and sculpture to graphic design, digital media, film and installations; the history of art, from prehistoric times to the twenty-first century and including art from all parts of the world; and major themes that recur across cultures and throughout history.

This work includes an insightful section, 'Gateways to Art' which takes eight iconic images and examines them from different points of view (compositional, stylistic, etc.) to stimulate perceptions about how masterpieces are created and take their effect.

“This book can play an important role in limbering up the mind. It will send neophyte and aficionado alike out into our museums and galleries afresh. And this is important.” – The Times
