Description: This best-selling exploration of traditional and contemporary art and artistic media focuses on art from the artists point of view. KEY TOPICS: Using an engaging, readable style, this book quotes artists themselves who explain what they were trying to do in their art. Emphasizing aesthetics and art techniques, the book also covers the philosophical foundations, elements and principles of design, and technical considerations of each artists medium. It offers broad coverage of all media as well as traditional and contemporary art, multicultural and non-Western art, art by women, outsider art, and computer graphics. It also covers such traditional and contemporary topics as creativity, encaustic, fresco, wood engraving, computer art, graphic design, photography, Xerox and FAX art, video art, conceptual art, performance art, earthworks, installation pieces, and folk art. Finally, the book includes maps with timelines showing the regions where major trends in Western art were developed and the site of major art and artworks while the timeline gives a global historical context for the evolution of Western art. The fourth edition of The Art of Seeing has been revised to include a new chapter on computer graphics including art on the Internet. It also includes boxes dealing with controversies such as censorship, race and gender criticism, restoration of paintings, protection of famous works, and art as an investment. The first chapter has been revised to provide a clear and provocative introduction to the understanding of art. And the final chapter now examines four major works of art in depth: Picassos Guernica, Rodins Gates of Hell, Michelangelos Sistine Chapel Ceiling, and Moshe Safdies Vancouver Library Square. There are also two new artists boxes including Stephen Alcorn on printmaking and John Lyle on ecologically-oriented landscape design. An essential art reference for every reader interested in art, especially art professionals and collectors.
