I'm glad I've recently studied some art history, otherwise, I wouldn't have had any mental images to go along with this audiobook, nor overall historical framework to make sense of his presentation. But yeah, with this pre-knowledge, I was able to appreciate Whitfield's interpretive sketch of the history of western art/5(11).
