This introduction to the study of art and visual culture focuses on the broad chronological period from medieval times through to the present, with reference to the art of other periods and places. It explores how ideas about art have changed over time. As well as studying well-known artists and artworks, you’ll encounter new and diverse forms of visual culture. Topics range from gothic churches to impressionist painting and landscape gardens to photography. It is based on a course from the Open University UK.
