Snappy Art History

Art History Snapchats

The internet has been besieged of late by a merrily impious combination of high-minded Art History and the common man’s social media platform.

Oh, yes, Art History Snapchats–combining old and new, academia and perfect vulgarity, in the best way possible.

Don’t fret if you don’t know your Fauvism from Abstract Expressionism, or can’t tell a Rubens from a Raphael or Renoir.  You don’t need the eye of a connoisseur, or have to give a damn about provenance. There are experts with large books for that. Although, if you’re not a complete ignoramus regarding the lives of Italian sculptors or the theoretical doctrines of Clement Greenberg, you might enjoy these all the more.

And so, without further ado, let me present to you, with a widening smirk on my face,  a discerningly curated array of some of cyberspace’s choicest Art History Snapchats.
