Timelines in Art

Oxford Art Online includes Timelines of World Art by geographic location. For each of the six regions below there are three or four timelines, each covering a specific era. The timelines feature brief summaries of important events in the visual arts; many of the summaries are accompanied by an image, and all link to articles in Grove Art Online for further reading.

Here are some other timeline resources.
