    Alternate Title: Let's Use Big Fancy Words to Describe Art without Saying Anything of True Merit!Alternate, alternate title: We're Totally Just Guessing What These Paintings Represent, but We're Using Lots of Words to Make it Sound Like We Do Know (*shrug*).Art history is entirely subjective to the viewer I think, and I hate when textbooks try to shape your view to be narrow and uninterpretive of the works.CONSTANTLY referencing things from the first volume (which ends with chapter 13), so if you can either get both volumes OR get the combined version, even if you're only taking one half of art history, you'll be much better off.

    This was an annoying read. It was required for my college art classes though. I will probably never read it again.
