Web Site of the Week: the Art Story
Founded in 2008, the Art Story Foundation has been working ever since to demystify modern art and share the ideas of modern and contemporary artists with the world. On the site, readers will find five main sections: Modern Artists, Styles & Movements, Timelines, Ideas & Critics, and the Art Story Blog. The Timelines are a great place to start, revealing historical overviews of the most important works in modern art, a synopsis of major trends, and a timeline of Jewish artistic achievement, among others. The Styles & Movements sections is also excellent. Here readers will find an alphabetized list of modern art’s most important movements and styles. Each article provides a Synopsis, Key Ideas, and other information to help readers gain a better understanding. In addition, Artists can be scouted alphabetically, with biographies of Josef Albers, Grace Hartigan, Pablo Picasso, and dozens of others who have shaped modern art in the 20th century. [CNH]
