How To Read World History in Art

Presenting pockets of history using specific episodes like the fall of the Berlin Wall and the proclamation of the Code of Hammurabi, this book looks at artistic representations of major events and examines whether they alter our understanding of them.

As well as specific moments in time, this book looks at broader themes, too, including war, the founding of empires, and great voyages, resulting in a vivid and comprehensive look at history through art.
