PREFACE.

The object of this series of text-books is to provide concise teachable histories of art for class-room use in
schools and colleges. The limited time given to the study of art in the average educational institution has not
only dictated the condensed style of the volumes, but has limited their scope of matter to the general features
of art history. Arch\u00e6ological discussions on special subjects and \u00e6sthetic theories have been avoided. The
main facts of history as settled by the best authorities are given. If the reader choose to enter into particulars
the bibliography cited at the head of each chapter will be found helpful. Illustrations have been introduced as

sight-help to the text, and, to avoid repetition, abbreviations have been used wherever practicable. The
enumeration of the principal extant works of an artist, school, or period, and where they may be found, which
follows each chapter, may be serviceable not only as a summary of individual or school achievement, but for
reference by travelling students in Europe.

This volume on painting, the first of the series, omits mention of such work in Arabic, Indian, Chinese, and
Persian art as may come properly under the head of Ornament\u2014a[viii] subject proposed for separate treatment
hereafter. In treating of individual painters it has been thought best to give a short critical estimate of the man
and his rank among the painters of his time rather than the detailed facts of his life. Students who wish
accounts of the lives of the painters should use Vasari, Larousse, and the Encyclop\u00e6dia Britannica in
connection with this text-book.

Acknowledgments are made to the respective publishers of Woltmann and Woermann's History of Painting, and the fine series of art histories by Perrot and Chipiez, for permission to reproduce some few illustrations from these publications.

John C. Van Dyke.
