Noted classicist Mary Beard has followed in the steps of Sir Kenneth Clarke in examining the world’s art. A companion volume to the "Civilisations" series on PBS, to which she contributed two episodes, Beard’s book is a multicultural and international look at art, examining evocative work from many countries, civilizations, and religions. How do we look? The observer views the work of art, and the image or sculpture mirrors back their own self on some level. A remarkable overview of the impact of how art feeds civilization and vice versa. -Greg
