We use Marilyn Stokstad's Art History Volume I and II in the art history
survey at Friends University. I believe they have a set of 100 slides
for each volume free to schools which order 100 or more copies of the
book. They have excellent support services. They sent me a set of
pedogogical slides (maps and line drawings, architectural plans and
elevations, etc. for volume I and vol.II's set is on the way. I think
the books are excellent and apparently they have won several textbook
awards. My problem is that in Art History II we will get to within two
chapters of the end of volume II, so I am looking for a text for Art
History III, Impressionism to Post-Modern. Any ideas?
