Global Art by Regions

Art has been defined in countless ways by

those who profess to understand it well.


Art in an elemental form is believed to have originated

in the Middle East in very Ancient times.


10,000 year old Art has been found on the walls

of caves at Lascaux, France and in the

stone works of the Ancient Egyptians.


It has been said that tiny drilled shells were

found in a cave in South Africa 75,000 years ago.

A primary form of simple Art was found

in the grave goods of the Neanderthals.


Not all in Society can possess Art, some of it is extraordinarily

expensive and out of reach to all but the privileged.

Consider that Van Gogh died penniless,

without ever having sold a painting and yet his work now

brings millions to the fortunate few who can afford it.

Whomever is ultimately given credit for being first,

the fact is we are all richer for having Art in our lives.


Global Art may include the following and many other forms:

Architecture, Dance, Music, Literature, Painting,

Sculpture, Media, Film, Photography, Theatre and Television.


These are places to learn more about the contributions made

to the Arts by the people of particular Global Regions:
