Stone Age
Hall of Bulls 15000 - 13000 BCE Lascaux, France
The Hall of Bulls is an entire
cave with preserved cave
drawings and is one of
the most well known
stone age pieces.

The very beginning of human ideas and artistic expression. The stone age is representative of the human's most primal stage of thinking. This also is a period full of uncertainty since it dates
so far back a lot of the information is
scattered and lost.

30000 - 2500 BCE

Note to Green:
At one point in time, all of the lines
proportionate to another. Then, somehow, someway, possibly by the God of Projects decided that my project needed to be less good and my lines are no longer as proportionate. The point is, I really did try to make it so you could see which movements overlapped and where they all started in relation to one another. Anyway, blame the God of Projects, not me.

Mesopotamia refers to the area that is now known as Iraq and Kuwait. It is considered as a cradle to civilization by western culture. The art during this time is mostly carvings from rock while the music includes lyres, reed pipes and drums.
This period of art lasted fairly short compared to the rest of the surrounding art movements. It was a very stylized ancient art. The art included sculpted minimalistic figures. This period reflects a more modern movement called Minimalism.
Egyptian art being a very well known movement, it's most known for it's architectural aspects (Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx). Similar to most stone age art periods, most of the works are carvings or sculptures. The left shows an instrument from ancient Egypt.

Thutmose, Bust of Nefertiti 1345 BCE Limestone

A turning point for visual art and understanding of human proportions. The greeks are well known for their human sculptures, especially their marble sculptures. This period was focused on understanding and learning the correct and proportional aspects of art to make it close to realism.
The Winged Victory of Samothrace
200 - 91 BCE
Like most things with ancient Greece, Music was originated through Mythology. Instruments were originally created by the gods. Music resembled many other cultures with instruments like lyres, drums and flutes.

piece of Japanese art

Japanese art closely related to Chinese art for some time until the 9th century. The preferred medium is paint, even in literature Japanese writers would scribe with paint instead of pen. There are several different types and periods of Japanese art, but for the sake of my sanity (and possibly yours) I won't cover them all.
A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains
960 - 1,127 CE
Wang Ximeng

Chinese art can actually date back to 10,000 BCE, and is considered one of the longest artistic traditions in art history. Subject matter mostly consists of landscapes and symbols of beauty. Some art focuses on the culture of China, historical events and religious aspects. Just like Japanese art, there are many different kinds of Chinese art, but for the sake of my sanity and yours I just brushed the surface.

Indian art is very similar to Egyptian art, especially dating back to stone age art styles. Most of the sculptures are depiction of their gods, and most of their most beautiful pieces of architecture is dedicated to religious practices.
Music in Japan differs than most of the previous periods with a variety of different instruments. Their sounds are different from lyres and traditional drums.

mid 1st century BCE
Roman and Greek art are very similar in style. There is a focus on proportion and realism. Sculptures and paintings have in depth attention to detail in order to give off more realistic style. Roman art, like many other periods of this time, had a focus on religious figures and gods.
Classical art is a more overarching term for the Greek and Roman periods. It encompasses the style of understanding realism and attention to detail.
Early: 480 - 450 BCE High: 450-420 BCE Late: 420-323 BCE

The Dresden Zeus
440 BCE
Medieval, like Classical, is an overarching term for several different periods (including Gothic and Romanesque). Medieval includes Biblical subject matter and many new architectural mediums such as Church mosaics.
Byzantine monumental Church mosaic
late 12th century
Painted crypt of San Isidoro in Spain
Romanesque art is an artistic period with some Classical influence, but modernized to biblical subject matter. Interestingly, the style is less realistic and more stylized than the Greek and Roman periods of art.
Gothic art was a development of Romanesque art. It had a focus on architecture, especially with churches. Like Romanesque art, Gothic art also had a lot of biblical subject matter and a focus on faith.
International Gothic Mary Magdalene in St. John Cathedral in Toruń
14th Century
Sainte Chapelle, Catholic Church
1,248 CE
The Renaissance is one of the most well known artistic time periods. The popular pieces from this time are still well known and appear in pop culture currently. Since the Renaissance was a change in culture and thinking, the subject matter did stray a little from biblical figures. However, religious pieces were still the most common and some of the more popular pieces. Looking back to the Hellenistic period and the Roman period, we can see similarities in the attention to detail and realism, especially in human figures and environments.
I recommend zooming in on pieces due to how much detail there is.
The Last Judgement
1,536 - 1,541 CE
Mona Lisa
Leonardo Da Vinci
1,503 - 1,517 CE
Oil on poplar
Northern most Europe Renaissance that began shortly after the more popular Italian Renaissance. Essentially the same idea, but a different culture: new ideas, more subject matter, attention to detail.
The Ghent Altarpiece
Hubert and Jan van Eyck,
1,432 CE
A result of the Italian Renaissance. Mannerism took the famous artists from the Renaissance and their work and used it to produce their own work. Known for it's grown in science and understanding (like the Renaissance). The two periods are very similar and the styles are even hard to distinguish apart. There was a lot of attention toward Greek religious figures instead of biblical, why I am unsure
but I assume it has to do with the development of
ideas and the human desire to see growth.
Perseus with the Head of Medusa
Benvenuto Cellini
1,545 - 1,554 CE
Note the reference back to the Hellenistic period, with Greek religious figures instead of a biblical scene depiction instead.
Madonna with the Long Neck
1,535 - 1,540 CE
Oil on wood
Baroque has a focus on movement, especially with figures. Many compositions include large scenes with a mass amount of people in some kind of historical/religious event. This period was prompted by the Catholic Church which is why so much of the subject matter is related to the bible. Rococo, or late Baroque, has a larger focus on decoration and architecture instead of painting.
Triumph of the Immaculate
Paolo de Matteis
Basilica at Ottobeuren interior
NeoClassism breaks down to the words "new classical", which is exactly what is. NeoClassical art draws inspiration from the Classical period, and Greek and Roman culture as well.
Thoughts on the Limitation of Greek Works in Painting and Sculpture
written by Johann Joachim Winckelmann
1,750 CE
An important piece of literature that helped develop and shape the NeoClassical movement.
Oath of the Horatii
Jacques-Louis David
1784 CE
Oil on canvas
Take note of the Roman-like helmets and attire in the photo above.
Considered to be a reaction of the European Industrial Revolution. More emphasis on emotional impact and more social and political analysis' rather than a focus on the Church. Romanticism romanticized the rural life, almost nostalgic for simpler times.It also had a focus on the beauty of nature, and human life within a natural environment.
The Lady of Shalott (one of my favorite paintings)
John William Waterhouse
1888 CE
Oil on Canvas
The Lady of Shalott
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
And by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, " 'Tis the fairy
Lady of Shalott."

She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.

All in the blue unclouded weather
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
The helmet and the helmet-feather
Burn'd like one burning flame together,
As he rode down to Camelot.

Out flew the web and floated wide-
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.

Who is this? And what is here?"
And in the lighted palace near
Died the sound of royal cheer;
And they crossed themselves for fear,
All the Knights at Camelot;
But Lancelot mused a little space
He said, "She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,
The Lady of Shalott."
Realism was a period in art where only realistic and reasonable scenes were depicted. It strayed away from classical views and also away from the Church. Art, for the first time really, was farthest away from religion for the first time. Politics and social issues had more of an impact on the community than before, opinions growing more and more. There was a greater focus on the lower/middle class rather than royal upper class individuals as well.
The Gleaners
Jean-François Millet
1857 CE
Oil on canvas
The example shows three women working in a wheat field. This a much more realistic scene than religious or mythological scenes that have been depicted in previous art periods
One of the much more well known periods of art. Impressionism is a very stylized period with emphasis on brush strokes, and having the brush strokes be visible within the art. This was a difficult transition for the public, in fact upon introduction many people shamed it. However, it ended up being a period with some of the most well known artist in history. Impressionism has connections to Romanticism with the focus on
nature and appeal to natural
Being one of the main artist to form the period, Monet it one of the most well known artists of the Impressionist period. He, like many others, focused on landscape art and the beauty of nature. Often, Monet would repaint scenes he'd already painted to capture the passing of days, seasons. Monet lived in Paris for a great majority of his life, greatly inspired by the artists' legacy at the Louvre and the beautiful environment of France. His most beautiful and well known work came after his wife, Camille Monet passed. His waterlilies series, being one of his most famous work, was actually
his very own garden.
Water Lilies and Reflections of a Willow
1916 - 1919
Oil on canvas
Water-Lily Pond and Weeping Willow
1916 - 1919
Oil on canvas
These works display Monet's tactic of revisiting familiar places and using it to display the passing of time. Also, they are apart of his famous waterlilies series. The two pieces clearly display his use of brush strokes and ability to depict realistic scenes through such a stylized style.
Van Gogh
A continuation of Impressionism, but less realistic than the period before. Even more stylized with more emphasis on brush strokes and less focus to proportion. This period also has a focus on movement, and showing movement through line. Starts to introduce a focus on emotion more than subject matter, leans more to abstract art. Post Impressionism paved the way for more obscure and emotionally connected art.

Vincent Van Gogh is probably the most appreciated artist of all time, especially, or at least of late, by young teenage girls. He is most known for his struggle with depression and his mental instability. During a spite of depression, Van Gogh cut off his own ear. He also believed that if he ate yellow paint some kind of happiness would grow inside him. Though Van Gogh's life was tragic, his paintings are beautiful and he is considered the most famous Post-Impressionist painters.
Starry Night

Pencil, pen and ink on paper
Van Gogh started as an artist using pencil. His less known work, Sorrow, is actually one of my favorite pieces by him.
Les Fleurs du Mal, or The Flowers of
Les Fleurs du Mal
Charles Baudelaire
1857 CE
This artistic movement contains aspects of Gothic and Romantic art, focusing on aesthetics
and symbolic beauty. Symbolism is almost the opposite of the Realism movement, favoring less realistic portrayals, favoring spiritual and ideal subject matter
Evil in English, was a book of poetry that began the Symbolism movement.
The Vision of the Youth Bartholomew
Mikhail Nesterov
1889 - 1890 CE
Oil on Canvas
The photo above depicts a religious/supernatural scene rather than a realistic scene. The cloaked figure being an angel/priest.
Also can be considered pointillism, this was a movement founded by the artist Georges Seurat. This movement, much like Impressionism and Post Impressionism pushed the public and social boundaries. Instead of a focus on brush strokes, Neo-Impressionism focuses more on dotted paint forming a composition. There is emphasis on color and color aesthetics (how colors relate to one another).
A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La
Georges Seurat
1884 - 1886 CE
Oil on canvas
A Sunday Afternoon is the most famous Neo-Impressionist painting.
Primarily popular in Germany, the Secession style covered several different art periods (like Classical or Medieval) Secession includes Art Nouveau and Vienna Secession. A very decorative style, emphasis of color and beauty.
Kazimierz Stabrowski
1908 CE
Oil on canvas (?)
Art Nouveau is known by several different names, but all with a similar meaning: modern style. Art Nouveau has a very graphic style. It strays away from a realistic style to more flat, even cartoon-y look. There was also a movement for stained glass artwork as well. Color also was very important, women were often apart of the subject matter. I think Art Nouveau is one of the lesser known art movements.

Fauvism is a movement closely related to the Impressionist periods. The use of color was supposed to be seen as "realistic values". The main artists of this movement were Henri Matisse and André Derain. This period was a little more abstract than the Impressionist periods, though the subject matter still identifiable it is altered more than previous art periods (excluding Art Nouveau).

American Gothic
Social realism was an art movement where artists focused on the middle and lower class and accurately portraying their stories. In many ways it was used as a political statement, and in America, a form of protest against the Depression. This movement was the first to include photography as such a popular medium.
American Gothic
Grant Wood
Oil on beaverboard
American Gothic, as we studied in class, is a Social Realist painting. It depicts a man and woman, who is widely accepted to be father and daughter, in front of a farm home. The two are a symbol of the hardship in the Great Depression. Their proportions seem to be slightly elongated to emphasize a feeling of somberness. It also is interesting how the father is staring directly at the viewer while the daughter looks elsewhere, possibly indicating how they are as people. Perhaps the father is able to handle issues and difficulties head on while the daughter tends to ignore or avoid them.

1908 - 1914 CE
An abstract movement, Cubism was an art movement that focused on the perspective of objects and portraying all perspectives in at one time and in one space. Very mathematical and difficult to comprehend at first, it's a very interesting movement full of theory and themes. Pablo Picasso would be the most famous and leaders of this movement.
Pablo Picasso
Arguably the most famous and well known artists today, Pablo Picasso was a master of the abstract. He displayed artistic excellence at young age, able to depict realistic scenes by the age of 15. Picasso's development as an artist is seen through different periods: the Blue Period (my favorite), Rose Period, African-Influenced Period, Cubism Classicism/Surrealism, WWII and more. He slowly made a progression away from realistic styles to more abstract and emotionally connected periods. A quote by Picasso, and one of my favorite quotes is:
"It took me four years to paint like
Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child." Cubism happened to be he most successful period.

Abstract art is, as you guessed it, abstract. It's an art form based on emotion and in depth concepts. There are many different elements that can make an abstract piece more meaning e.x. How the painting was created, where the artist was when they made this and so on.

Photography is more of a medium than a movement, and has been present ever since the creation of the camera. Photography is most known for capturing important images in history and often times is used for political and social reasons.
Examples of Photography are included in Social Realism
A German movement almost entirely based on the idea that "Dada is not Dada" and that nothing really is anything. The point of Dada is to frustrate and confuse viewers and, in my humble opinion, is probably the most over-thought movement in art history, and quite frankly I think that it tries too hard, but I digress. Dada also has a lot of spoofs as actual pieces of art that others have taken credit for.

Surrealism, a movement that began in the early 1920's, was one that focused on the state of dreams and reality, Artists would create a visibly realistic scene but the subject matter being illogical. The movement was heavily based on symbolism and in depth concepts rather than straight forward messages. This was one of the first movements to include film as a medium, incorporating disturbing and illogical plots to create a somewhat cohesive piece of art.
Salvador Dalí
Salvador is the most well known Surrealist artist, and mostly due to his strange nature. His work resembles that of the Italian Renaissance and other Classical styles, but altered to fit the Surrealism movement. His behavior would often grab the public's attention much more than his actual artwork, which was later greatly appreciated as well. He has worked in a number of mediums, but his paintings being the most popular and memorable. Some of his film work is also fairly popular as well.

Abstract Expressionism
1940 - 1950
Post war movement, abstract expressionism has elements of Abstract Art and Impressionism/Expressionism. This movement is based on emotion and the ability to express it. Usually, subject matter is unidentifiable or possibly not even existent. This movement is heavily criticized by the public, but holds more to what meets the eye. Some Abstract Expressionist use interesting techniques when it comes to creating paintings that are an actual aspect to the art.
This was described as "action painting".

Street Art
1980 CE
Pop art derives from popular culture. It had a focus on romanticizing modern American life and was the complete opposite of Abstract Expressionism, it's neighboring movement. Pop Art took modern life, such as new technology, new popular culture and mashed it into artistic pieces. Pop Art still remains fairly popular as the 1940s/50s still remain to be one of the most fondly remembered American styles (as I also go over in my Tartuffe essay).
Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?
Richard Hamilton
The most influential piece on Pop Art
Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol is the most well known Pop Artist and his prints of Marilyn are still well appreciated. His subject of choice were day-to-day items of the American lifestyle in the 50s. For example, Warhol has done several prints of Campbell soup cans, his most popular being his Tomato soup can. He also has done work with Coca-Cola bottles.
Marilyn Monroe prints
Acrylic on Canvas
Similar to Monet from the Impressionist period, Warhol would revisit things he's already created and reproduce them in mass amounts. Another Pop artist who experimented with the revisiting technique would be Roy Lichtenstein, who, like Warhol, was one of the leaders of the Pop Art movement.
1960 - 1970
This movement was based on stripping down art into it's very basic elements. Minimalism is exactly what it implies: minimal. This includes pieces that are, quite literally, one solid color on a canvas. This movement, much like Conceptual Art (a later movement) is built off the idea off the response to "I could do that!" with "Yes, but you didn't."
Voice of Fire
Barnett Newman
Acrylic on Canvas
1960 - Present
A movement with the soul goal on creating art as photo realistic as possible. It evolved from Pop Art, straying away the cartoon-y style that some of Pop Art had and focusing on capturing culture of American life in the most realistic way possible.
John's Diner with John's Chevelle
John Baeder
Oil on canvas
Op Art
1964 - 1970
Op Art or Optical Art is a period with a specific style of black and white (usually) using line and pattern to attempt to make a still image to appear to be moving. This also can be considered Optical Illusion art
Movement in Squares
Bridget Riley
Tempra on Hardboard
Conceptual Art
1964 - 1975
Conceptualism is based on the concept behind a piece more than the aesthetic. As mentioned before, this period is critiqued for it's lack in "skill".
One and Three Chairs
Joseph Kosuth
Chair, photograph and the definition of chair (printed)
Conceptual art is supposed to make you search for a meaning and explore possible reasons for the artist to create such a piece. One of Three Chairs, for example, is completely up to the viewer on what it means. My analysis of it is that there are three different ways we recognize ideas, through it's physical existence, the visual representation of it and the language to describe it.
1970 - 1990
A movement created as a reaction against conceptual and minimal art. Reaches back to classical art and traditional reasons for art instead of seeking for meanings. It portrays recognizable objects and human figures with often very vivid colors and in dramatic ways.
Anselm Kiefer
Oil and acrylic
Installation Art
1970 - Present
A form of 3D art that often includes architecture as an element. Installation is very wide in range, it includes all kind of art that uses installation as a technique in art. It can be displayed in public places as well as museums.

Observation: Art
As time progressed, the length that art periods lasted shortened, and soon, by the 1800s, art periods were beginning to emerge around the same time until around the 1900s there would be an incredible amount of movements all at once. I think that it's going to get to the point where there are no longer movements but only just one mass group of people creating whatever they want.
Middle Ages
Music is dominated by the Church, sticking to religious themes and stories. Music was more of a luxury and only those of wealth could afford to be entertained by music.
The Renaissance
Influenced by the renaissance social movement, music began to stray away from the Church and grow more into human thought and growth. Development of music theory began and soon there were more set rules to music. Things such as symphonies and orchestras began to rise. Music became more important and more public.
Creation of tone in music. More experimental in music technique and starting to stray away from structure. Complexity in music began to grow in this period.
Age of the most influential composers, including Bach(left), Beethoven(right) and Mozart. Includes music that still carries on today and pieces that still are used in popular culture. Highly sophisticated instrumental music.
Events and ideas began to influence music more. There were aspects of past music periods, but the subject of music began to change more. Music began to become more nationalistic.
20th Century
Modern music, so expansive that it's separated into several different genre's. Endless amounts of different styles now accessible to anyone of any class.
Observation: Music
Music's timeline stayed much more structured that the art timeline. Music only began to expand and become more accessible to people as time progressed.
