ASAG Journal surveys the development of visual and material culture set within a historical and stylistic context.
Studying Art history helps us to understand the evolution of artistic styles and movements throughout history, from ancient times to the modern day. By examining the techniques, themes, and cultural contexts of different art forms, we can gain insight into the social, political, and economic conditions that influenced their creation. We can also learn about our own cultural identity and the identity of other cultures around the world from surveying this subject. Further, it can inform our understanding of other disciplines such as literature, philosophy, and history. Thus, art history has relevance beyond the world of art. Additionally, contemporary artists, can draw inspiration from the works of past masters and incorporate elements of historical styles and techniques into their own work. And so overall, the study of art history is a valuable pursuit that allows us to appreciate and preserve our cultural heritage, understand the world around us, and inspire creativity in contemporary art.
