Thinking About Art explores some of the most influential works of art and architecture in the world through the prism of themes, instead of chronology, to offer intriguing juxtapositions of art and history.

The book ranges across time and topics, from the Parthenon to the present day and from patronage to ethnicity, to reveal art history in new and varied lights.  

With over 200 colour illustrations and a wealth of formal and contextual analysis, Thinking About Art is a companion guide for art lovers, students and the general reader. It is also the first A-level Art History textbook, written by a skilled and experienced teacher of art history, Penny Huntsman.

The book is accompanied by a companion website: www.wiley.com/go/thinkingaboutart.
