Description - Western Art and the Wider World by Paul Wood

Western Art and the Wider World explores the evolving
relationship between the Western canon of art, as it has developed
since the Renaissance, and the art and culture of the Islamic
world, the Far East, Australasia, Africa and the Americas.


Explores the origins, influences, and evolving relationship
between the Western canon of art as it has developed since the
Renaissance and the art and culture of the Islamic world, the Far
East, Australasia, Africa and the Americas

Makes the case for ?world art? long before the
fashion of globalization

Charts connections between areas of study in art that long were
considered in isolation, such as the Renaissance encounter with the
Ottoman Empire, the influence of Japanese art on the
19th-century French avant-garde and of African art on early
modernism, as well as debates about the relation of
?contemporary art? to the past.

Written by a well-known art historian and co-editor of the
landmark Art in Theory volumes
