One Minute Art History Movie - Painting


The site offers a short movie that takes viewers through a history of painting. It begins with examples of cave paintings and progresses forward in time through ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The journey continues onward through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and into the present day. This is an excellent introduction to the art of painting that younger audiences will find both educational and entertaining. It is an especially good resource for demonstrating the historical sweep of the visual arts.
