This book treats the art of the whole world from prehistory to the present day through the extensive use of maps. Covering painting, sculpture and architecture as well as other arts and artefacts, the 'Atlas of world art' provides an entirely new vision of the history of the world’s art by showing how physical and political geography has shaped its developments. Instead of simply showing where and when great artists lived and worked, or where major styles developed, the Atlas also tries to show why these phenomena occurred. This requires not only giving information on their political, religious, economic and cultural contexts, but on the natural circumstances surrounding their emergence as well. It also means charting the availability of raw materials, such as pigments for colouring. Organized in seven chronological periods and with contributions from 67 internationally-renowned art historians, this book is original, comprehensive and up-to-date enough to make it a benchmark reference work for many years to come.
