Reviews

The title alone is enough to hook browsers. Hodge uses high-level questions about famous and lesser-known works of art to provoke critical thinking about a variety of artists and their creations. Comedic cartoon guides help point out some of the concepts mentioned in the text, while the questions allow students to make the reading experience their own. [A] colorful romp through the art world.
With a playful, casual tone, this informative introduction to art history will encourage plenty of readers to approach museum visits with more confidence...Hodges tackles a broad range of topics. Each chapter includes a few reproduction of pieces, all paired with brief, lighthearted paragraphs offering descriptions and helpful content. The scope and diversity of her selections is pleasantly vast: she includes everything from ancient cave murals to contemporary installations and everything in-between.
Lively in design, with reproduced artworks, doodles and variegated text... A chatty discussion of art and its meanings, both commercial and cultural.
