When Harry Abrams first published theHistory of Artin 1962, John F. Kennedy occupied the White House, and Andy Warhol was an emerging artist. Janson offered his readers a strong focus on Western art, an important consideration of technique and style, and a clear point of view.The History of Art, said Janson, was not just a stringing together of historically significant objects, but the writing of a story about their interconnections, a history of styles and of stylistic change. Jansonrsquo;s text focused on the visual and technical characteristics of the objects he discussed, often in extraordinarily eloquent language. Jansonrsquo;sHistory of Arthelped to establish the canon of art history for many generations of scholars.

The contribution of multiple authors allows an expert's understanding to permeate each and every part of the text with a currency in art historical thinking and an enhanced discussion of context.
