Art history doesn’t consist in simply listing all the art movements and placing them on a timeline. It is the study of objects of art considered within their time period. Art historians analyze visual arts’ meaning (painting, sculpture, architecture) at the time they were created. Another of art history’s missions is to establish authorial origins of artworks, i.e. discovering who created a particular artwork, when, when and for what reason.
