Avis de l'équipe

If you’re looking for an accessible entrance into the realm of art history, look no further - this concise, comprehensive introduction from Oxford University Press’s Very Short Introduction series has you covered! Dana Arnold authors this engaging audiobook, which provides listeners with basic information about the field of art history, including everything from important artists to the chronology of different mediums, to the relationship between traditional western art history and a more modern, anthropological focus on non-western artistic contributions.

Voice actor Julia Whelan has a clear, friendly voice, and her performance is well-paced and accessible. Getting into a new field can be scary, but Whelan’s approachable tone makes art history seem too cool to miss out on!

Description

This clear and concise new introduction examines all the major debates and issues using a wide range of well-known examples. It discusses the challenge of using verbal and written language to analyze a visual form. Dana Arnold also examines the many different ways of writing about art, and the changing boundaries of the subject of art history. Topics covered include the canon of Art History, the role of the gallery, 'blockbuster' exhibitions, the emergence of social histories of art (Feminist Art History or Queer Art History, for example), the impact of photography, and the development of Art History using artifacts such as the altarpiece, the portrait, or pornography, to explore social and cultural issues such as consumption, taste, religion, and politics. Importantly, this audiobook explains how the traditional emphasis on periods and styles originates in western art production and can obscure other critical approaches, as well as art from non-western cultures.

An Introduction to Western Methodology and Theory

What did you love best about Art History: A Very Short Introduction?

This is a book about methodology and theory within the academic field called "art history," rather than the development of art as a history. If you are looking for stories about how art involved from cave paintings to Picasso, this is definitely not the book you want. If you are looking for an answer to the question: "How should I look at a piece of art work" or "What the f* are those snobbish art historians talking about?" This could be a good beginning. Although Dana Arnold has worked with institutions in China and Turkey and she is aware of the Eurocentrism in the mainstream art history, this book is still largely a Eurocentric introduction of theories and methodology. Each chapter has so much left unsaid. But as writing is drawing boundaries on our ideas, Arnold has done an impressive work with the limited words.

not what I was looking for

I was looking for history of art not art history whatever that is. only two characters briefly mentioned a bit of history about actual art.

Excellent Short Survey of Theory

This is an excellent book on its own terms - an introduction to the theory of art and its history. It is a good, short intro to "Theory" in the broader sense, using art history as its subject.

This is not a book about "the history of works of art" - it is not a chronological description of how Western art has evolved, of periods of art, or of social causes of changes in art styles.

It is a discussion of the theory of art and art history. The book discusses issues like "What Is Art," how art is presented, what groups and classes benefit from certain ways of presenting art, etc.

I have found it a provocative book, and enjoy listening at random to see what thoughts it sets off.

a pretentious academic book:

it sees all art as political. it uses po mo terminology to make its shallow point it says at one point that 18th century art was part of its "popular culture."

Most people (the populace) was too busy surviving to be concerned with "art."
