Since publication of the first edition in 1926, Helen Gardner’s Art through the Ages has been a favorite with generations of students and general readers, who have found it an exciting and informative survey. Miss Gardner’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and humanity have made it possible for the beginner to learn how to see and thereby to penetrate the seeming mysteries of even the most complex artistic achievements. Every effort has been made in this volume to preserve her freshness and simplicity of style and, above all, her sympathetic approach to individual works of art and to the styles of which they are a part.
