Synopsis

Analyze, Understand, Appreciate "Living with Art" provides the tools to help students think critically about the visual arts. Using a wealth of examples, the first half of the text examines the nature, vocabulary, and elements of art, offering a foundation for students to learn to analyze art effectively. The latter half sets out a brief but comprehensive history of art, leading students to understand art within the context of its time and place of origin. High quality images from a wide range of periods and cultures bring the art to life, and topical essays throughout the text foster critical thinking skills. Taken together, all of these elements help students to better appreciate art as a reflection of the human experience and to realize that living with art is living with ourselves.

It is with a deep respect that Mark Getlein undertakes the work of revising Gilbert's Living with Art. The challenge in his work has been to retain the style, wit, and clarity of Ms Gilbert's voice, while recognizing the important changes in the art world since the publication of the fifth edition in 1997. Like Ms Gilbert, Mr. Getlein brings to the effort a wealth of experience in art publishing to the task - as a contributor to the fifth edition of Preble's Artforms and as a contributing author and developer on the first edition of Marilyn Stokstad's Art History where he developed the chapters on India, China, Japan, and Africa and authored many of the boxes and captions that integrate the images into broader cultural and artistic context. Mark is currently developing A History of Art in Africa for Abrams and The Longman Anthology of World Literature for HarperCollins.
