Art and Expression in the context of Time

A Perspective on Art History

This post marks what is hoped to be a series of timeline graphics on Art.

By no means is art a well understood subject, least not in the primitive jungle. Yet – each exposure to art seems to inspire much thought and emotion to most beings capable of emotion and inspiration – be it negative or positive.

In trying to investigate the subject via the web – preliminary Junglist observations include:

  1. Art is obviously in some way linked to the expression of Humankind’s thoughts and emotions;
  2. As with all things human, there are a number of different frameworks with which one would likely use to analyse and describe the historical context of art, and there also exist many variants which attempt to focus more specifically at a particular (significant) period of art and expression;
  3. The search thread “Art History Timeline” yields a great number of graphics relating to the evolution of amongst other things – mobile phones, and computer games;

The graphic above is sourced from a fantastic blog which DRAWS the ATTENTION!!!¬†of students in Mrs. Castriagano’s art class – many thanks from your Junglist fans.
