    schema:reviewBody "The radically new approach of this book views art as a truly world-wide phenomenon. For the first time the artistic expression of prehistoric Oceania or the Nile Valley of the Pharaohs can be appreciated alongside that of nineteenth-century Russia or twentieth-century USA. Readers can compare countries separated by thousands of miles and many centuries, and discover how each is affected by opportunities and constraints dictated by location or culture. As well as showing where and when great artists lived and worked and how major styles developed, the Atlas explains how art has been influenced by religion, trade, travel, war, and other political, economic and cultural factors. The Atlas also provides the first comprehensive picture of the impact of the natural world on the development of art. The nature of Man is considered alongside the availability of raw materials, and this work charts, for example, the sources of fibres for weaving, pigments for colouring, wood for carving, minerals for casting, paper for printing, and stone for use in sculpture and architecture. With its combination of great breadth and constant clarity of focus, the Atlas allows exceptional insights both into what unites art and what makes it so varied. Organized in seven chronological periods and with contributions from 68 leading international specialists, the Atlas of World Art is original, comprehensive and up to date. It will be a benchmark reference work for many years to come." ;
