  1. General Bibliography 12 items
    1. For the student studying art history for the first time, Ernst Gombrich's The Story of Art (Phaidon, 1995) is essential reading.  Gombrich provides a concise, readable history of art which will give you a useful context for your first-year course.  You should also read Gombrich's Art and Illusion (Phaidon, 1977) and M. Roskill's What is Art History? (Thames and Hudson, 1976).

       

      You will have to develop a general understanding of the range and chronology of art history and the important texts from the Christian and Classical worlds which have inspired so much western art.  In this context you may find it helpful to consult Hugh Honour and John Fleming's A World History of Art (Macmillan, 1982) and the Penguin Dictionary of Art and Artists

      (Penguin, 1997) for reference purposes.
