Website Review: Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History

The MET’S HEILBRUNN TIMELINE OF ART HISTORY tells the story of art and global culture using artwork from around the world.
This interactive website pairs essays and works of art with chronologies exploring global culture through art. The essays and works of art sections provide access to dozens of essays by time period, geographical region, or theme. The chronology area allows users to select a time period or geographical region to explore. For each piece of artwork, users can explore information and related topics and resources.
Librarians will find this website to be an interesting way to discuss timelines and other visual representations of information as part of an information literacy lesson. Art teachers will find the website useful in tracing the history of art, while history and social studies teachers can connect art to culture.
