Encyclopedias
Atlas of Western Art History : Artists, Sites, and Movements from Ancient Greece to the Modern Age CASE Ref. G1046.E64 S7 1992 Unrestricted Access
Art meets geography more or less chronologically. The source presents the course of art history with brief topical essays and some 150 maps. Superimposed upon plain base maps (shortlines and rivers only, with too few key maps of the physical landscape) are a great variety of colors and geometric symbols relating to an artistic topic, time, and place. Many of the historical subjects covered are obvious ones, like the medieval pilgrimage routes and the expansion of Alexander the Great's empire. Others are quite novel and demonstrate the keen descriptive power of maps: the travels of individual masters during the Ren-aissance, for instance, and the widespread sources of raw materials in antiquity. Facts on File, 1992
