This website's mission is to make modern art more accessible and digestible to the general public by providing information that is easy-to-understand, professionally designed, and logically presented. The Art Story continues to cover all the major movements, artists, and ideas in modern art.
Using the tools of the ‘new’ art history (feminism, Marxism, social context, etc.) An Introduction to Nineteenth Century Art offers a richly textured, yet clear and logical introduction to nineteenth-century art and culture. The book provides readers with a basic historical framework of the period and the critical tools for interpreting and situating new and unfamiliar works of art.
Smarthistory at Khan Academy is an open educational resource for art history. Introductory art history content is freely available to anyone, anywhere. It offers nearly 500 videos and these are being translated into dozens of languages
