Derived, with revisions, from The Encyclopedia of visual art (published by Encyclopedia Britannica in 1983), this reference presents mainly brief entries for an impressive number of the world's artists (though those in the West predominate). The better known receive longer entries and lists of further reading. The volumes are well-illustrated with color plates. Volume Four contains a glossary and index. The authors are art historians, mainly in the UK. The reference is recommended for
students in high school and older, and the general reader. Annotation 2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
