My AP Art History teacher distributed this to my high school AP art history class as a textbook and as a friendlier companion to our monstrously bulky 1000 paged art history textbook The Annotated Mona Lisa really is a crash course on art history covering much of the materials needed in about 200 pages I literally had a cram study session with my friend the day before our AP Art History exam by reading through this entire book I'm really glad i did too because I felt I did really well on the writing portion of the test Had I not read over this book I would have still been confused and mixed around the Renaissance artists to the Baroue artists Reading this book in its entirety and also looking over a bit of my notes really made me understand and do well on my exam even though it really was last minute studying and cramming I did however have some problems with the book There are some pictures of artwork in the book that was supposed to be in color like Gericault's Raft of the Medusa The Annotated Mona Lisa DID NOT provide color images of some of the artworks in the book and that was very frustrating Not only that but several times when a remarkably interesting or famous piece of art is mentioned you would think that the author would provide a picture of the work so the reader can see what they are talking about Well they didn't And that kind of pissed me off because I really wanted to see what they were talking about and compare and contrast the artwork they were talking about with the artwork that was shown I'd really like the author to please try and release another edition of the book one with corrections to my two complaints stated Other than that this was a very educational and enjoyable read I just gave the book back today to the school since school's almost out and I'm actually pretty sad that I had to part with the most amazing textbook ever we've been through sweat and blood and tears together trying to learn art history I will DEFINITELY go out later to buy myself a copy A really great book

This book covers art history pretty well For me anyways it gave me a great jumping off point to get into art and it provided me with a mental timeline of how movements came and went over time It goes from prehistoric to contemporary in about 200 pages or so which is made even incredible by the fact that I actually understood it in such a short time I found its best feature to be the portions on modern art as I have an affinity for that as is and to see it explained well was very helpful Overall I very much liked it and anyone else who wants to get into art probably will too
