Figurative Art History

An overview of some of the most innovative and influential painters and sculptors from figurative art history to the mid-twentieth century. Capturing the human form from ancient Greece through the Renaissance into Romanticism, modernism, laying the paving stones to contemporary artwork of today.

Some of these links lead to a Wikipedia page about the artist. Wikipedia may not be terribly satisfying but it’s a good and safe place to start and will not bombard you with annoying ads and virus threats.
