Samenvatting

Historically, images and objects do far more than simply represent the visual world. Visual images offer feelings, thoughts and insights to those who view them and interpret what the artist perceives. We in turn interpret the images for ourselves, adding new and different layers of meaning to the art.
"Explorations in Art History: Connecting Objects and Ideas" is an anthology of articles written within the past 100 years. These articles, taken from art history and related disciplines, offer insight in provocative ways. Rather than merely giving facts and statistics, the material in the book provides interpretive discussions of works of art.
The selected readings discuss topics such as iconography and iconology, abstraction, historical narrative in ancient Near Eastern art, and painting in 15th Century Italy. The articles cover a wide range of subjects from ancient to modern art, from Mesopotamia to mass-produced kitsch.
"Explorations in Art History" can be used in any Introduction to Art or Art History survey course. It is also appropriate for Liberal Studies and Studio Art programs.
