For the past 75 years, ART THROUGH THE AGES has defined the introductory art history course. The intention of this classic, in Helen Gardner's words, has been to introduce the reader to certain phases of art, architecture, painting, sculpture, and the minor arts from the remote days of the glacial age in Europe, through successive civilizations of the Near East, Europe, America, and the Orient, to the twentieth century.
This imaginary museum, created and curated by Phaidon, houses the finest art collection ever assembled. Unrestricted by the constraints of physical space, its rooms display around 3,000 paintings, sculptures, frescos, photographs, tapestries, friezes, installations, performances, videos, woodblock prints, screens, ceramics and manuscripts that tell the history of world art.
