This site is set up to give students enrolled in my Art History courses access to course syllabi and digitized reproductions of the artworks we study together in class. Because of copyright restrictions, only students actually enrolled in the courses and assigned a password will be able to view the syllabi and images. Anyone, however, may link to the sites listed under "Art History Resources on the Web," below.

Art History Resources on the Web:

Want to browse through other digitized reproductions of artworks besides the ones I've made? Interested in learning more about artists and architects whose work you've seen in class? Writing a paper or doing research on an artist or an artwork? Chances are you'll find what you're looking for, and make many new discoveries as well, by visiting a few of these easy-to-navigate Web sites. Just click on the blue URL following the title of each site.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Timeline of Art History: http://www.metmuseum.org/toah

This is a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of the history of world art, especially as it is represented in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The timeline is written by the museum's curatorial, conservation, and educational staff. It consists of over 20,000 pages, including 300 chronological narratives, 750 special topic essays, and 5000 color illustrations of works of art in the museum's collection.

Carol Gerten Presents Fine Art (CGFA):  http://sunsite.unc.edu/cjackson/fineart.htm

This is a 'virtual art museum' with over 6000 very high quality digitized reproductions organized alphabetically by artist's name. Paintings dominate. This is my favorite site for browsing!

WebMuseum, Paris, France:  http://sunsite.unc.edu/wm

Includes artists' biographies, brief and reliable essays on movements and periods in the history of art, and many reproductions of paintings organized by period, country, and artist's name. Also features changing online art exhibitions. European artists tend to dominate.

Artcyclopedia: http://www.artcyclopedia.com

A good source for tracking down museum-quality fine art on the Web, with a focus on painting and sculpture (although you also will find some reproductions of photographs, installations, video and digital art, and architecture). 5500 different artists are represented here, organized alphabetically by artist's name. The reproductions come mostly from the digitized collections of museums world-wide, and from reputable image archives on the Web.

Art History Resources on the Web:  http://witcombe.bcpw.sbc.edu/ARTHLinks.html

This superb site is designed by a professor of art history specifically for other art historians and art history majors, but it is useful to anyone who is interested in tracking down art images, constructing bibliographies, and solving problems in the history of art. The first page of this site is a comprehensive outline of world art, organized chronologically with links to museums, archives, other research tools, digitized images, university art history departments, and much more.
