Book News
Arranged chronologically and grouped by period and artistic style, this atlas presents 150 maps that portray such information as the spread of artistic styles throughout history; sites of temples, monuments, cathedrals, palaces, and villas; travels of artists in Europe during the Renaissance, the 18th century, and the World Wars; the influence of Byzantine and Islamic art; city planning from ancient Rome to the 20th century; and sites of sculpting materials sources. Accompanying essays help the maps establish the historical context of artistic developments; and some 300 illustrations give a tantalizing sampling of what was being produced at various times in various places. An ambitious project, generally well-conceived and well-executed, except for the inexplicable lack of a bibliography. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
