Comprehensive Timeline of Western Art History

Since the Old Stone Age, art has taken many different styles and forms. From ancient rock carvings and engravings to contemporary schools that call upon more immersive elements, there is a vast timeline of art history. Many of the movements throughout history are representative of the historical context of that particular period. As artists, it’s important to understand how each movement inspired the next, and how art has evolved since.

Invaluable created a comprehensive timeline of Western art history that details each movement, leading contributors, key characteristics, and iconic examples from each. Some are more recognizable, while others are less known, yet still had a significant impact on the art world to follow.
