What is Discover Western Art?


"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are artists."
Marcel Proust

Discover Art was developed during the 2002-2003 school year by Helen Rindsberg for the Cincinnati Public Schools' Virtual High School. It is a two semester course on Western Art History using web resources and printed materials.

Many foundations and individual donors have given generously to the world's great art museums so that they may share their treasures on the World Wide Web. They are expanding everyone's vision. Thank you!

Thank you also to my students who have helped me refine this course with their suggestions for images and their amazing insights into many artworks. I will continue to use their suggestions to improve the presentations and add web sites that we discover together.
