Drawing studies for major works of art provide a glimpse of the artistic process.
Large-format illustrations, often with multiple views (for sculpture) and details (for painting), enhance appreciation and understanding of art.
Context essays and technique commentaries help students interpret artworks by offering cultural and historical background, and by explaining media and techniques.
“Connections” features show how a particular work of art was influenced by or otherwise relates to an earlier work of art.
Beyond the West essays introduce world art out side the Western canon.
