Boasting well over 6,000 contributors from 12 countries, the Dictionary offers its readers authoritative and comprehensive global coverage.
A resource for both art and cultural studies, the Dictionary serves as a unique guide to all the visual arts: painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, drawing, printmaking, as well as the decorative arts. The Dictionary ranges far both geographically and historically; it features unparalleled coverage of Africa, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and Mongolia, China, India, the Islamic world, Japan, Korea, Native North America, Pacific and Aboriginal Australia, Pre-Columbian America, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, the Ancient Near East, and Ancient Rome. Providing depth as well as breadth, The Dictionary of Art examines important art forms and key issues of design, taste, function, and patronage, illuminating them in light of the cultural context in which they developed.

Review:


"The most ambitious art-publishing venture of the late 20th century, The Dictionary of Art is an awesome single source on world art....It is an invaluable acquisition for any serious art lover, indispensable for libraries or schools."--The New York Times Book Review


"A major triumph...the outstanding reference tool for many generations...essential for every art, academic, and large public collection."--Library Journal


"As you browse it, you realize what an unprecedented effort of distilled and integrated scholarship it represents....No more complete guide to the world's art exists; this is especially true of the range of cultures outside the West, both old and modern, such as Aboriginal Australia, Oceania, or Ancient Egypt....There's no art publication in existence that gives the reader such richness of detail and coherence of organization."--Time Magazine


"One of the most important publishing efforts for related disciplines such as anthropology, archaeology, ethnology, theater, and the history of culture."--Booklist


"The largest and most comprehensive reference tool on the visual arts that has ever been published."--Choice
