We understand the history of humanity through art. From prehistoric depictions of wooly mammoths to contemporary abstraction, artists have addressed their time and place in history and have expressed universal human truths for tens of thousands of years. Learn what made Rome great, how Islamic tile work evolved, why the Renaissance happened, and about the brilliant art being produced today around the globe.
Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker, together with leading art historians, have created hundreds of short engaging conversational videos and articles, making Khan Academy one of the most accessible and extensive resources for the study of the history of art. Come with us to the Louvre, to a church in Rome, and to a mosque in Istanbul so that you can experience the art up close and on location.
