The Story of Art, one of the most famous and popular books on art ever written, has been a world bestseller for over four decades. Attracted by the simplicity and clarity of his writing, readers of all ages and backgrounds have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, and one who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating his deep love of the subject.

For the first time in many years the book has been completely redesigned. The illustrations, now in color throughout, have all been improved and include six fold‐outs. The text has been revised and updated where appropriate, and a number of significant new artists have been incorporated. The bibliographies have also been expanded and updated with redrawn maps and charts as well.

Two key qualities have always set this book apart: it is a pleasure to read and a pleasure to handle. In these respects the new edition is as true as ever to its much‐loved predecessors. This classic work continues its triumphant progress tirelessly for yet another generation, to remain the title of first choice for any newcomer to art or for the experienced connoisseur.
