Well, it’s that time of year again…finals week. I might try to get a small queue going for the next couple of weeks, but if not I will be back after May 2!
I’m glad you found my blog too! There are lots of places you could get started. I got interested when I had to take a history of Western art class at college, and if you’re really serious about learning about it, you can find the text books I used for my class here. They’re going to tell you pretty much everything you need/want to know and more! If you just want some general knowledge or hate reading textbooks, I would suggest checking out the MET’s Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. It’s interactive, has art from all over the world and different cultures dating back to 8,000 B.C. Another thing I love to do is go to the library, and find the oversized art books. Its pretty much like having a museum in your lap and you can learn tons just by looking at art/reading brief captions. Thanks for the ask and let me know if you have any other questions! Hope that helped :)
