    This is a rigorous art-historical exploration of how digital art has developed in the post-war era. By taking the historical and cultural contexts of digital art practices as the starting point for his writings, Lambert eschews the recent traditions of looking at art theory first and foremost (whilst not underrating its signal influence in this field). Nicholas Lambert will examine art, technology, science and culture as fundamentally related to the development of digital art. By drawing on major art-historical thinkers such as Stafford, Elkins and, of course, Gombrich, the author is continuing an important but undervalued strand of research within this field. This is a comprehensive and accessible account which aims to provide everything a student could need for understanding digital art.
