Art and its Global Histories

About the series

A new series offering an accessible introduction to the ways in which the history of Western art from the fourteenth century to the present day has been bound up with cross-cultural exchanges and global forces.

Each of the four textbooks in the series explores a distinct period of this long history, apart from the third, which focuses on the art and visual culture of the British Empire, with particular reference to India. All of the textbooks are designed to be read independently by the general reader. To encourage the reader to reflect on the material presented, each chapter contains short exercises in the form of questions printed in bold type which are followed by discursive sections.

There is also a companion reader, Art and its Global Histories: A reader, edited by Diana Newall. The Reader is organised under key themes and ideas that underpin the notion of a global art history spanning from the fourteenth century to the present day.
