Do some Googling about the subject and then look up the books on Amazon!

http://www.amazon.com/Flemings-Arts-...arts+and+ideas

Explains the artistic style of each important era by analising one defining work and showing how it reflects the culture of the era. Tremendous book, stood at the basis of my successful passing of university admission exams some time ago. (I studied art history).

This might be a bit off topic, but I am personally trying to publish an architecture book myself
