by the art of children (Kandinsky, Klee, and Miro), and the artist credited with the first nonobjective painting (Kandinsky). Dates will not be emphasized, other than a general knowledge of the approximate dates of the periods in question, and which artists belonged to which periods. Chapter 1 Notations - Cave paintings, Fig. 346...when a date is preceded by c., it means "circa”, or approximately. - Other useful abbreviations include: i.e. (id est) = that is; e.g. (exemplia gratia) = for example; etc. (et cetera) = and so on; N.B. (nota bene) = note this. - The oldest surviving art is around 30,000 years old. The earliest art was probably made for religious, or supernatural purposes. - A mandala , as seen in Fig. 2, is often used as a focal point for meditation. - Titles of works of art are normally italicized ; the acceptable substitute when using a typewriter that can't do italics, is to underline it. - A self-portrait , as in Fig. 9, is a picture (or sculpture) of an artist, BY that artist.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
