Smarthistory is an interesting site (historically categorized into different periods) that not only displays images of over 200 art works, but have well informed, engaging discussions as embedded audio.

  1. This is a pretty cool site. I’ve been building a timeline of the history of Dutch Baroque art at I’ve also been building a timeline of Renaissance art at Anyone is free to contribute to it and enhance it with images, videos, or commentary.

    Our idea is to create an interactive historical record of anything and everything, based on specific events that combine to form timelines. We’re trying to achieve a sort of user-created multimedia encyclopedia, in which no event is too big and no event is too small, and where each event can contain various types of resources, such as video, images, maps, etc. It’s also a good way to direct traffic to your blog because your events will pop up along with anything else that’s thematically related. We’re also planning on creating an embeddable version of our timelines in the near future.
