Timelines of World Art

Review significant moments in art history from all over the globe. For each of the six regions (Africa - Americas - Asia, Australia, New Zealand, & the Pacific - Europe - Middle East) there are three or four timelines, each covering a specific era. The timelines feature brief summaries of important events in the visual arts; and all link to articles in Grove Art Online for further reading.
