Description


Whether you're looking for a way to pass a college class or   just get a clear working idea of the who, what , when, where, and how of   art I can help you out!

This is a clear concise series of Art   History lectures that cover the major works of painting, sculpture, and   architecture.  My lecture style is casual   and clear.  I don't believe in using a lot of jargon or overly complicated  language.

 One of the theories concerning the explosion or eruption at Santorini as being responsible for the destruction of Knossos seems to be false or questionable.  A more reliable theory, based on discoveries concerning the languages of Linear A and Linear B seems to support that Knossos changed hands around 1500 and the Mycenae may have taken over at this point.  I will be udating my videos soon to reflect this.
