Smarthistory

Smarthistory is described as an “online art history textbook” and is presented in the form of an interactive timeline. Intended as an alternative to the traditional static Western art history textbook, the aim of the website is to expand the understanding of works of art through recorded conversations, which can be located on the website in the form of podcasts, Flash-based videos, and images. The material is accessible by ‘time’, ’style’, ‘artist’ or ‘theme’.
