Now that the importance of Art as a means of intellectual culture is at last becoming recognized in England, the want of a simple Introductory Text-book is felt by all engaged in education. To supply this want the present volume has been compiled.
The framework and the greater number of the illustrations are borrowed, with the permission of the publishers, from a small "Guide to the History of Art" which has long been in use in German schools; but this framework has been filled in by reference to standard English, German, and French authorities, and each division of the book has been supplemented by a chapter on Art in England. A glossary of the principal technical terms employed has been added; and if the "Elementary History" awake an interest in Art, and teach young people to recognize and appreciate beauty under whatever form it is presented to the senses, the aim of the writer will be fulfilled.
