This lecture will help you identify the characteristics that are distinct to art movements ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th Century. Many examples will be shown to illuminate how each era made unique contributions to the span of art history, by both expanding on and reacting against what came before.

Several significant examples will be shown and discussed from PAAM’s collection.
