The Changing American Landscape  

See the Timeline of Art History on the website for the Metropolitan Museum of Art: for an excellent overview of art history and general human development from 20,000 BC on as reflected by their own vast collection. The site is constantly changing, has a great deal of information about American art, and is lots of fun. Click onto the page called "First-Time Use" for a good explanation of how to best navigate the site.
