In the 21st century, we see more images on our cell phones in one hour than someone in Renaissance Italy saw in an entire lifetime.

Art is not just contained to museums – it is all around us. Tattoo art, customised cars, graffiti on the walls of subways / trains, designer sneakers, music videos, and even video games are art. These pieces rely heavily on art history. However, one must have a bit of historical knowledge of art to fully appreciate everyday examples.

Art History Today: A Workbook challenges preconceived notions generally found in art history and sheds light on the significance of art to mankind.
