Image Gallery

This image Gallery is provided as a study guide for slide identification testing purposes. Generally if I ask you to identify a slide I want to know 4 specific things about that slide. 1) Name 2) Artist 3) Date 4)Period. If any of this information is missing you may substitute it with another fact.

I also ask that in addition to those four items that you provide me with one additional piece of information drawn either from my lectures or this website. It is also important to remember that this information is just for the slide identification portion of a test. the most important pieces of art have a lot of other information available to them and you will occasionally be asked to provide more information on some of them during a test.
