Art history is the study of the visual world, both past and present. It looks closely at a wide array of images, objects, buildings, and sites in order to better understand human societies. Art History operates with the understanding that visual/material artifacts may speak more directly and deeply about a culture than its written record. Art History seeks to understand visual and material culture more broadly: from paintings and sculpture, to architecture and urban design; from scientific illustration and political posters, to performance art and street graffiti.
