Art history is an important element of the art education of children because it explains why artists do what they do. Here you’ll find biographies of many famous artists, e.g. Picasso and Frida Kahlo and brief histories of many art movements such as Fauvism, Post Impressionism and Expressionism, amongst others.
The following art histories will be relevant to students, particularly those studying GCSE and ‘A Level’ Art courses. Teachers teaching art in primary / elementary schools will find the information useful as background knowledge when teaching art.
