In-depth walkthroughs of key works of art

Closer Looks

The Closer Look feature models how an art historian talks about a work of art and enables students to zoom in on details they might not otherwise see — even in person! Closer Looks provide engaging facts and include expert audio to help with pronunciations. The Closer Look is the most assigned resource in MyLab Arts. Instructors tell us it’s popular with students and also helps improve the quality of their students’ writing.
