This website is produced by five first year students from Purdue University who have spent the past couple months learning about art history, evolving technologies, and how the ideal beauty is shown in art and how that has changed over time.  Our project focuses on how art has evolved throughout time due to technology and looks at what factors in society have changed the perceived ideal beauty. On this website, information about the authors, our resources used, images portraying various time periods, and a connection to Baron’s From Pencils to Pixels can be found. Also, most importantly, information on five time periods, Prehistoric, Ancient Greece, Medieval, Renaissance, and the Modern Era, are included. In this information, the history, ideal beauty, and new technologies in each period are easily laid out for viewers like you in order to allow the easiest access to information about the ideal beauty throughout time as possible. Please like us on Facebook and explore the beauty embedded in history.
