Art and Visual Culture: Medieval to Modern - for iPod/iPhone

The Open University



Have you ever wondered about the visual remains of past centuries that still survive in our cities and countryside today? Are you baffled by modern art? This collection provides you with insights into different aspects of art and visual culture between the Middle Ages and the present day. You will discover the wonders of medieval stained glass and learn how East meets West in a Byzantine icon. You will be introduced to the splendours of Baroque architecture and be taken on a tour of a spectacular display of Neo-classical sculpture in an English country house. And you will find out about a key movement in modern art, Abstract Expressionism, and take a look at some iconic works in Tate Modern. This material forms part of The Open University course A226 Exploring art and visual culture.
