Art History is...


An artwork, although created in the past, it continues to exist in the present and viewers can see and interpret the work in the light of their own experiences keeping the original meaning and circumstance in mind. Artists and Architects can reinforce or challenge values and practices through the objects they create. As students of art and art history we must look at and discuss art and architecture in order to better understand the social, historical and cultural influences they had then and now.
