Reframing Art History, an open-access multimedia art history “textbook,” gives you a guided journey through the living, breathing, meaningful side of art history. We’re less concerned with names and dates than with meaning and movement. With chapters developed by a group of more than 40 experts, it showcases art and history from the bottom up.
Smarthistory is the single largest resource for teaching and learning art history online, with 600 academic contributors (including many international contributors), 40 museums collaborators, 50 million page views in 2020, and multiple rounds of funding from Mellon, Kress, the NEH, Thoma, Terra, Walton, and many others. We also support the future of the discipline with interns from Spellman College, early-career fellowships, and a rotating Mellon postdoc. Current partnerships include international museums such as the Museum of Art and Photography in Bangalore and the National Museum of Korea.
Smarthistory also offers thousands of high-quality, high-resolution images through their Flickr account.
