Interactive Art History

Timeline of Art History The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has created this great interactive gallery online where you can browse the history of art: by period, by timeline and by geography. There are lots of pictures, videos, audio recordings, essays and reading lists.

This could be overwhelming, but the site is an absolute joy to navigate. My only minor complaint is the omission of any Canadian art.
