The field of art history is definitely a challenging area of academia, but you don’t need to have an advanced degree to appreciate all the beautiful works of art that are displayed in museums and galleries. All you need is a love of art, a little patience, and an open mind.
Art history is roughly divided into a variety of chronological and/or geographical categories, including:
- Prehistoric art
- Ancient art
- Western art
- Eastern art
- Medieval art
- Renaissance art
- Modern art
- Contemporary art
If this list of artistic movements seems overwhelming, it’s easy to narrow it down into manageable areas. For instance, you can start by choosing an artist or a piece of art that you’ve always loved. Perhaps you admire the Water Lilies paintings by Claude Monet. Monet was French, and began painting around 1862. He was one of several artists during this period who were at the forefront of the Impressionist movement. So now you’ve narrowed down your area of interest to French Impressionist painters of the 19th century, which is a much less daunting task than trying to learn about art from cave drawings to Andy Warhol.
