    Guiding newcomers through the worlds of art and art history, How to Speak Art: Understanding Its Language, Issues, and Themes explores works of art from prehistoric cave paintings to modern artists such as Christo, while teaching readers how to decode art through visual analysis.

    Readers learn to utilize the language of the visual arts in an interactive and engaging online format as they consider complex issues such as the destruction and restoration of art, art theft, forgeries, misattributions, and the controversial fates of numerous works of art during and after World War II.

    The second edition has been significantly condensed and reorganized for intuitive week-by-week reading and assessments ideal for both synchronous and asynchronous courses. Each of the 14 chapter modules includes content entirely new to this edition, such as pre- and post-reading assessments, video links and accompanying activities, and a fresh “In the News” feature, which presents a recent news story involving art and invites students to answer thought-provoking questions about each real-world example.

    How to Speak Art is ideal for introductory courses in art appreciation and visual arts and survey courses in art history.

    Julia C. Fischer holds a Ph.D. in the history of art from The Ohio State University. Currently, Dr. Fischer is an assistant professor at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas where she teaches survey courses in art history and appreciation and upper-level courses in art and crime, ancient art, Renaissance art, and Asian art. With a specialty in the iconography of Roman Imperial cameos, Dr. Fischer has presented her research at numerous national conferences, most recently at the American Association of Italian Studies.
