Chronology of Art: A Timeline of Western Culture from Prehistory to the Present

Chronology of Art: A Timeline of Western Culture from Prehistory to the Present


A fascinating insight into the art world from the 1800s up until the present day, this book aims to put art history under a sharper lens, as it considers key works of art in context with contemporary events, be they political, social or economic.

The title is divided into five sections – Ancient & Medieval, Renaissance & Baroque, Rococo & Neoclassicism, Romanticism & Beyond, and The Modern Era – making it an immersive journey through the defining movements that have shaped the art world. ‘In Focus’ features, meanwhile, put notable works into the context of how they reflect social, stylistic and technical developments.

Presented against a timeline that places artwork alongside important social and cultural events, consider it a handy companion for anyone interested in expanding their art knowledge.
