Item description for History of Art by Jacques Thuillier...
History of Art is the first survey to recognize that the modernization and expansion of museum exhibition space over the past thirty years has increased the subject matter available to general students of Western art. How can one make sense of this rich history without being daunted by innumerable dates, places, and names? French scholar Thullier has created an equal balance of copious illustration with his superb critical text. He explores the art of each historical period by medium: painting, sculpture, and architecture. Filled with exquisite reproductions of unparalleled quality, this is the ultimate art reference book for readers.

Something different May 18, 2004
At last here is an very good art history book that doesn't just regurgitate what everybody else has been writing for the last 40 years. Jacques Thuillier has his own mind and opinions and these don't always accord with the "usual" art history books on the market. His writing style is clear and the reproductions are excellent, although I wish there were just a few more of them. He knowledge of the subject is huge and varied, as one would expect from a Professor on the topic. I would recommend this book to any individual and library.
