Much needed, thoughtful and enjoyable publication Thinking about Art is a timely book to guide my new year 12 students through the AQA Art History qualification. It is clearly written and gives access to both History of Art students and A level Art students, to a wide variety of painting, sculpture and architecture. Penny Huntsman and the AAH are to be commended for this much needed, thoughtful and enjoyable publication.
