Readers familiar with H. W. Janson’s History of Art textbook will immediately recognize the cover of A. H. Fessler’s Art History Lesson as a comment on Janson’s ubiquitous text. With a hardbound cover that replicates Janson’s book, Fessler seems to be challenging the authority of Janson’s text and, through the change in the title, letting readers know that there is lesson to be learned in her book as well.
