Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 6 Up-Greenway highlights 59 terms that are important "to a discussion and understanding of art." Each term is richly illustrated with examples. While there are familiar paintings, there are also lesser-known works. For example, "Expressionism" is illustrated with Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night and Edvard Munch's Girls on a Bridge. Sidebars highlight individual artists. Occasionally, the alphabetical framework seems contrived, but the text is succinct and the full-color photographs and reproductions, often several per concept, are lush and informative. For example, under "Decorative Arts," text and illustrations consider work from ancient Egypt, 11th-century Peru, and 19th- and 20th-century Europe and the U.S. Although art from Africa, Asia, and India is included, most of the illustrations feature Western art. An excellent introduction to art terms.-Laura Younkin, Ballard High School, Louisville, KY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
