Gothic II




Notre Dame, Paris 

Mother of All Medieval Tests! 


We will begin our study of the Renaissance with the material on pp. 601-612. This time period is often called the Proto- Renaissance.


Get reading! We are behind.

Mother of All Medieval Part I, (Scantron) Wednesday, 25 February.

Catholics, that's Ash Wednesday. Get to Mass; get your ashes and get to Tutorial to make up Part I.

Part II (Essays and Open Note), Friday 27 February. 


I found two good Art History class websites. The first does a good job of giving an overview and some important details. He also gives some review material and a self-correcting quiz you can take. 


The second provides a nice set of review sheets for each of the chapters. Both sites provide text and images. Both are based on Gardiner, but will do just fine for us.

It's too bad they go up only to Medieval. I wish I had found them earlier. The URLs are on the Links page. 


Recommend you go to Test Prep page. There are some good files there to be downloaded and printed, especially the "Essential Images for Art History."

I have made Flash Cards available from this page and from its own page to the left.


Here is the Terms sheet for the Early Christian through Gothic periods. Print it out; punch it, and keep it in your notebook for spelling references.

Here is the Fleming piece on Humanism, Rationalism, and Idealism. You can download it, read it, and do a 3 X 3 on it. You can also ask me for a hard copy in class. 

Humanism, Rationalism, Idealism



 For those who wish to purchase the text, I recommend the two volume, hardback, slip covered edition. The price is about $95.00; however the two paperback, school text volumes are $72.50 apiece. Remember, there is NO requirement to purchase the text.

The text may be found at any of the major on-line book stores. 

 I highly recommend having a copy of a book called  The Annotated Mona Lisa. Students say this is the most useful review tool available for the AP Art History test.. She also has a book entitled The Annotated Arch about architecture. I think it's good, but I haven't really used it that much. 

Here is a link to the title at You can choose either new or used, all at a good price..
