Art Across the Ages
Art Across the Ages consists of 48 video lectures taught by Professor Ori Z. Soltes, surveying Western visual art through history from the prehistoric cave painting of hunting scenes to the startling perspectives of Postmodern paintings. Throughout the lectures, Professor Ori Z. Soltes discusses the basic history of Western visual art and major artists and their styles. He tries to show how art reflects on its own forms across history in a constantly changing dialogue involving style, form, and symbol. Professor Soltes uses hundreds of images of masterpieces of the Western visual art, covering the wide range of media - painting, sculpture, architecture, decorative arts, photography, drawing, mixed media, assemblage, and installation art.
