More Information about Smart History

SmartHistory is a collaboration of more than 200 art historians, archaeologists, curators and other specialists who want to make the highest-quality art history learning content freely available to a global audience. Contributing editors oversee specific content areas.

Started by Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker in 2005, SmartHistory is a free, not-for-profit, multi-media web-book designed as a dynamic enhancement (or even substitute) for the traditional art history textbook. SmartHistory is made possible by generous grants from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
