The book includes chapters on tectonic sculpture, civic monuments, secular and Christian art in architecture, and classical art. It also examines art in the architecture of ancient Egypt, eastern and western Asia, and America.
Art and Architecture leads students to the realization that some of the greatest paintings in history were never placed on canvas and some of the greatest sculpture did not stand alone. They were part of architecture. The book is ideal for courses in architectural history, art history survey courses, and as a supplemental text for architecture students.
