Welcome to the History of Art pages. In this section of Know About Art you will be able to learn about the History of Art. Dealers, Appraisers and Auctioneers will have an in-depth knowledge of the Art History and specialist knowledge of their chosen areas of interest. It takes time an experience to acquire their levels of expertise, but they too had to start somewhere. Had this website been available at the outset of their studies, it would be nice to think that it would have been on their list of bookmarks.
This History of Art section arranges the major art movements in chronological order. You can browse the various art movement sections, or you can look at each one in sequence.
The information given is a starting point only. If you have a serious interest in learning how about art history, you should go away and do further research on the art movements that particularly interest you, identifying other leading artists in each area.
