From Booklist:

There aren’t many art encyclopedias targeted to youth audiences. In this one, volumes 1–7 cover a specific period of Western art: Ancient and Classical Art, Medieval Art, The Renaissance, The Baroque and Neoclassical Age, The 19th Century, The Early 20th Century, and Contemporary Art. Volume 8, World Art, deals with art from the rest of the world. Each volume begins with a time line of the art world alongside other notable events. Individual chapters are arranged chronologically and deal with specific art trends, such as “Gothic Art,” “Neoclassicism in Britain,” and “Pop Art.” The eighth volume treats 11 major non-Western cultures. Within articles, sidebar essays focus on individual artists, schools and movements, tools and techniques, masterpieces, and other cultural and artistic topics. The major benchmarks in art are covered competently. The encyclopedia emphasizes traditional two-dimensional art but does mention sculpture and a few architectural examples, such as Gothic cathedrals and Versailles. Some attention is given to women artists. Crafts are largely relegated to World Art (e.g., Chinese porcelain). In a few cases, treatment is unequal; for example, little mention is made of early American art. Within the articles, sidebars treat individual artists, schools and movements, tools and techniques, masterpieces, and related historical and cultural topics. In the later volumes, a few masterworks are discussed without accompanying illustrations, which is frustrating. The technique sidebars are disappointing in that they only discuss, but do not illustrate, the methods, for example, mezzotint and ostrich-egg art. Each volume concludes with a glossary, further references, and an index; the last volume’s concluding features are cumulative.  Practically every page includes color reproductions, which are generally well rendered in terms of color balance, although definition is sometimes fuzzy. The spacious layout makes for readable text. This set provides an accessible and engaging introduction to art history, from antiquity to current trends. Libraries serving middle-schoolers and up will find it a useful addition to their collections. Grades 6-10. --Lesley Farmer
