Art History

'Art is that which elevates our interpretation of the world and of ourselves from simple description or narrative to the sublime. Art occurs when images and objects, sights and sounds, or drawings and carvings convey the beauty and splendor of the world, or a realized imagination of an artist, for the purpose of self-expression or the shared enjoyment of its creation.'  This is a wikibook that is a survey of art history from Prehistoric Art to The 20th Century Art.
