This book is concise, even though fairly comprehensive. It gives beginers in this field the necessary basis and never gets boring. One reads and learns, and enjoys the many pictures in the book. Gombrich is simple, clear, and above all, he loves the master pieces he introduces. He makes one discover the major periods, the major movements and also the life of the major Masters.
It is as instructing as a History book, and as captivating as a Novel: the Story of Art is definitely a good title!
The first book one should have on the subject.

E.H. Gombrich's The Story of Art is one of the best introductory books on the history of art available today. The combination of Gombrich's insight into various art movements (particularly his discussion of Impressionism and Cubism) and the inclusion of many quality reproductions make this book exceptional. If after reading this book you find yourself hungering for a more in depth examination of art history, i also recommend Marilyn Stokstad's Art History; it includes many of the same issues raised and explored in Gombrich's book, but takes them a bit further. If you are interested in learning about art and its history, (and if you want to have an enjoyable time doing it) then consider reading Gombrich's The Story of Art; you will not be disappointed!

When it comes to art, I am an idiot. But this book is the perfect amount of basics, insights, and neat pictures that it is highly informative, yet also highly entertaining. This combination is rare, especially in any book that is the size of a textbook. I cannot stress enough how much this book will help you understand the concepts and theories behind such words as "Renaissance", "Impressionism" and other words you have heard but might not have really understood.
Buy this book, it is worth every penny and more.

Whenever people mention art or art history, I think back to my Humanities classes at Michigan State. Gombrich's "The Story of Art" was a delighful text. Thorough, yet written in a way that was understandable to someone with very little exposure to art and all the nuances. "The Story of Art" makes the "Study" of art enjoyable. I have often regretted re-selling my text back to the book store since it would have made a wonderful reference. How delighted I am to find this book to still be available!!!

This book is a wonderful introduction to the subject, and while most of the
illustrations are in black and white (in the original edition) the author gives so
much background information on ancient and medieval times that his subject really
comes to life and makes for fascinating reading. Gombrich holds that art
appreciation is not just a matter of personal taste, but that even if one does not
like a particular piece of work one can still value it as a great piece of art.
Gombrich really succeeds in describing how art develops in a logical evolution,
and why different schools and styles rise and fall. His book includes only the
most influential works in painting, architecture, and sculpture. As his tale ends
with the start of the 20th century much of modern art is not present. Completely
beside the point, the author of this great work has been accused of chauvinism
because there are no women in his descriptions of the old masters. The reason is
that all the old masters were in fact men. Gombrich does not twist the truth for
political reasons, as so many modern authors do. He gives his readers the facts.
Whenever he adds a personal opinion, he makes it very explicit that he does so, a
practise that is unfortunately not common in art literature. Obviously a single
book can hardly cover the subject in much depth; however, even the methods of
argumentation and explanation alone make this work a true classic, and a great
gift, especially for young people.

One of Gombrich's many virtues is his ability to convey in clear, yet rich prose his depth of understanding and love of art. However, as I rethink my art history survey offerings I feel a need to break away from texts that have such a strong authorial viewpoint as this one. I'd prefer a text that presents a number of interpretations of a single work, such as the one by Laurie Schneider Adams, or a more neutral tone, as in the survey by Stokstad. It is essential that students learn to question what they read. There is a long tradition for art history texts to come across as "Bibles." The prose is so eloquent, and the cultural mastery so impressive that many students leave a course believing that they've learned the "truth" about certain artists, rather than cultivated opinions based upon clusters of available information.

After 1,5 months of waiting in vain, I contacted the provider and they said that my package had been lost and promised to re-send me another book. Another 1,5 months later, the book is still not here. I live in Germany and other deliveries, even from the US, reach me in less than 3 weeks. This one is taking 4th months. I would not recommend trusting this provider if you need it delivered to Germany.

There are many good books on art. There are some great ones. And then there are all-time classics. "The Story of Art" belongs to the third category.
