A Text-Book of the History of Painting

A Text-Book of the History of Painting by John Charles Van Dyke
By:

A TEXT-BOOK OF THE HISTORY OF PAINTING
BY JOHN C. VAN DYKE, L.H.D.
PREFACE.
The object of this series of text-books is to provide concise teachable histories of art for class-room use in schools and colleges. The limited time given to the study of art in the average educational institution has not only dictated the condensed style of the volumes, but has limited their scope of matter to the general features of art history. Archaeological discussions on special subjects and aesthetic theories have been avoided. The main facts of history as settled by the best authorities are given. If the reader choose to enter into particulars the bibliography cited at the head of each chapter will be found helpful. Illustrations have been introduced as sight-help to the text, and, to avoid repetition, abbreviations have been used wherever practicable.
