The Grove Dictionary of Art, the award-winning 34-volume set that was launched to critical acclaim in 1996, represents the knowledge of more than 6,800 of the world's leading scholars. It is now the preeminent reference resource for the visual arts. The new GroveART series makes this comprehensive and authoritative art scholarship accessible and affordable to all audiences for the first time. Complete with a multipage color plate section as well as extensive black and white images throughout, each volume in the series will focus on one particularly popular area or period of art history. Broad enough to appeal to the general reader, but thorough enough for the art historian, each book will reflect the depth and excellence of coverage that brought such acclaim to The Grove Dictionary of Art.

From Renaissance to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and from the Gothic Revival to Art Nouveau, the rich and varied history of Western Art is narrated through more than 180 articles on its styles andmovements. Covering all forms of the visual arts -- architecture and decorative arts as well as painting and sculpture -- this book describes the most important features of popular European and American movements, such as Louis XV, Biedermeier, the Hudson River School, and Colonial Revival.
