About the Author

Paul Wood is Senior Lecturer in Art History at the Open University, England. He has published widely in the field of modern and contemporary art, and is co-editor, with Charles Harrison and Jason Gaiger, of the landmark three-volume collection Art in Theory: An Anthology of Changing Ideas.


"Western Art and the Wider World is certainly a timelymyth-buster in terms of current anxieties and panics about thedemise of the West s supposed cultural and economic place atthe centre of things. Wood traces a long history of admiration andindebtedness to the East in terms of knowledge, art,commerce and governance. He also asserts that the history ofwestern cultural dominance has been relatively short less than 200 years in his reckoning. Western Art andthe Wider World tells stories of exchange, parity and mutualcuriosity between the West and rest." (The VisualArtists News Sheet, 1 March 2014) "A cautious, open-minded attempt to write about the history ofWestern Art form the Renaissance through the early and latemodernist era, as it encountered, and was encountered by, the restof the world." (Art Review, 1 March 2014)
