History of Art & Architecture

Palaces, cathedrals, monuments and pyramids that are considered works of art. Explore the relations between tradition and contemporary trends.

A Comparison of Gothic Cathedrals in Europe star
Chartres Cathedral in France, Salisbury Cathedral in England, and Siena Cathedral in Italy will be compared, relative to each country’s interpretation of the Gothic style.

Ancient Columns & Greek Revival Architecture star
Temples were built in ancient Greece using three orders of columns. Wanting to emulate this style, Thomas Jefferson was the architect of neo-classical buildings in the United States.

Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor of France (1804-1815) commissioned the building of arches in Paris to celebrate his military triumphs; however, one was moved and another had its sculpture replaced.

Sculptor Bela L. Pratt – Boston Public Library star
Bela L. Pratt may not be a household name like Bella Swan, the character from the ‘Twilight’ series, but this Boston sculptor was an important artist during the early 20th century. I’ll discuss his accomplishments and acquaintances.

Taj Mahal : Labor of Love star
The magnificent tomb built by Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife is indisputably one of the most magnificent architectural masterpieces of all time.

The Art & Architecture of Church Buildings star
Churches reflect the art and architecture of the era in which they were built. I'll discuss the house church as well as one of the world's most famous cathedrals.

The Inside Story of the Pyramids star[offsite link]
An online adventure presented by NOVA that describes the history, meaning, and science of the pyramids at Giza. You can actually experience a panoramic photographic view of the inside of a pyramid.
