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 Renaissance. 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.
For those who wish to purchase the
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
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.
is a link to the title at Amazon.com. You can choose either new or used,
all at a good price. I would buy soon. My reading of the Art History
discussion board shows that lots of AP Art History teachers are
recommending it, and the used copies will soon be gone.
