Charlene Brown's Landscape Painting Timeline

Charlene Brown (1,150 words) very kindly sent me a copy of “The Google Guide to the History of Design” - her cross-cultural time-line of archaeology and the history of art, architecture, design and invention. It's amazing!

History of Design, Page 8 (of 10)

She's highlighted all the aspects which relate to landscape art in colour

This ten-page outline runs from the earliest rock art through to the present day. Landscape painting developments are hi-lighted in colour, get passing mention on pages 4, 5 and 6, but only feature prominently on pages 7, 8 (shown on the left) and 9.
You can download a copy by clicking on the link in the above paragraph - which is sourced from Charleen's blog post Landscape Painting Timeline

One of the major benefits of Charlene's timeline is that it is crosscultural and covers four areas:
  • Americas and Pacific
  • Europe
  • Near East and Africa
  • Asia
It shows all the significant developments in the history of art and design in every civilization worldwide back through five millennia and beyond!

This concise 10-page matrix lines them all up and Google will take you to the documentation and illustrations on the internet using the timeline search words.
