About Art History for Everyone. . .

Why is the Virgin Mary's skirt almost always red? And what does a dog symbolize in old paintings? Can a wineglass and a hat tell us something about life in the Netherlands during the 17th century? And how did Michelangelo feel about painting the Sistine Chapel? 

In Art History for Everyone, you'll get to know some of history's most notable artwork. You'll be surprised and delighted to discover strange and striking paintings and poignant sculptures — and become acquainted with the artists and their thrilling stories. 

Join us for an exciting journey through art history, from Ancient Greece and Rome to today, you're sure to have eye opening moments, about everything from love and politics to religion and adventure. 

You'll never look at art in the same way again!
