Engineering and Technology in the Pre-Modern Era

As you explore the history of the Pre-Modern Era, you learn how advances in technology and science shaped the imagination of artists. Witness the swift growth of the iron and steel industries, and the construction of skyscrapers and the Eiffel Tower.

A continuous multimedia Overture (more than 30 minutes in length) dramatically illustrates the History and Art of the Pre-Modern Era (1845-1900). Learn how the invention of the camera created a fundamental change in art. Examine the bold, hasty brushwork and sketchy backgrounds of Impressionist masterpieces. Identify the characteristics of Realism, Formalism, Impressionism, Expressionism, and Art Nouveau - all the movements and influences that revolutionized Western art and removed it from the idealized images of Classicism and Romanticism. This is a wonderful package for art students, scholars, and art enthusiasts who want a deeper understanding of this glorious artistic era.

Click to view the Overture, which gives you the option of going directly to questions and explanations on the ideas being expressed, to full-screen enlargements of each work of art, to the specialized index on the Pre-Modern Era included in the supplementary Encyclopedia, or to the text file showing the provenance of each artistic work. ZCI's click-and-scan architecture lets you explore each artist's aesthetic development, and shows your masterpieces by individual artists. The result? Perspective and appreciation.

Just click to see magnificent artistic works by Cézanne, Courbet, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Seurat, Van Gogh, and many others. Listen to selections from compositions by Dubussy, Mahler, Ravel, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky.

Reviews:

Home PC, March 1995

"History is more than a collection of names and dates; what makes it fascinating is its record of how ideas evolve. The changes are especially captivating when seen in the work of the world's great artists over time."

CD-ROM Today, February 1995

"History Through Art is devoted to what might be called ?mainstream' western art. The series adopts a rather fusty approach to the subject that appears to be derived from art history texts of generations ago...History Through Art is the only game in town when it comes to in-depth surveys of western art on CD-ROM. For that reason alone, plus its low price, it is a worthwhile purchase for schools and libraries. But I'm still waiting for the art history discs of my dreams."
