The Timeline of Art History is a chronological, geographical, and thematic exploration of the history of art from around the world. The entire collection of works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art are referenced in the Timeline. At present, the Timeline extends from prehistory to 1800 A.D. It will span art history up to the present day by the fall of 2004.
Special Topics in the Timeline focus on specific themes in art history. They cover subjects such as artistic movements and periods, archaeological sites, empires and civilizations, recurrent themes and concepts, media such as painting, sculpture, and ceramics, and artists.
