The history of art studies the origin of art from the first rock paintings to the experimental art of today. A PhD thesis in this partkicvolare versantem should cover the themes of Western tradition and the cultures of the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and the Americas. The research program should take into account both knowledge and wisdom to bring an intelligible order to the wealth of names, periods and styles that surround us. Looking at the visual arts from a psychological perspective should make us see art history as a continuous interweaving and changing culture in which each work refers to the past and points to the future; a living chain that connects our artistic present with the ancient age.
