Art is for everyone. ARTe makes it easy to understand.
ARTe is the story of art, simply told. We tell the most interesting stories about artists whose work is found in your local museum. Then, using the ARTe Timeline®, we put their art into the context of the times they lived. If you’ve ever wondered why some paintings are in museums while others hang on restaurant walls, ARTe is the answer. Enjoy.

Explore The ARTe Timeline®
Our mission is to demystify the art world. The ARTe Timeline® gives a brief overview of all the major art movements since man first drew on cave walls, including photos of the most important works.
Art. History. ARTe tells a story as old as human thought. It is our vanities, our frailties, our insecurities and our strengths. ARTe was born through a love of museums and because art is so much more interesting when you understand the story behind every piece. The deeper you dig, the more fascinating art becomes.
Dig into ARTe, and enjoy.
