Artsy offers the unique ability to trace the evolution of art historical movements visually and consolidated in one place. Use Artsy to explore the history of any art term, such as Collage or Documentary Photography. Sort any gene page by artwork year. 

Put subject matter into perspective by seeing how different artists across time periods have represented topics like the human figure or scenes of everyday life.

Compare how Dada artist Marcel Duchamp used Found Objects with the work of contemporary artist Charles McGill, who recycles and reconfigures golf bags into abstract sculptures.
