A Survey of Western Art

We saw A Survey of Western Art (TDC Interactive) in beta. We hope the final version will be much improved. In its present form, this is a very elementary reference work. The design is clumsy. There is no index; to find an artist you scroll through an entire section and, even then, the entries are often arbitrary. For instance, Juan O’Gorman is the only artist listed under “Latin America;” you’ll find Diego Rivera and Siqueros listed under “Modern.” There is no attribution for the text and no bibliography so there is little value for a student. Let’s hope that the final version bears little resemblance to this beta.

– March 1995
