History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology.

How Art Buyers Find Photographers Now

Business was good; now, not so much. Clients want everything triple-bid, they want more for less, and they want it yesterday. Photography is everywhere, and there are more places to look for the right photographer than ever.

IS HAVING A REP MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN IT HAS BEEN IN THE PAST?

The short answer is no. "If I get a great promo from someone it really doesn't matter to me if they have an agent or not, because in the end we're looking for the right person for the job," says Celeste Holt-Walters, an art buyer with McCann Erickson in New York.

The long answer is that running a good business and being a savvy networker and self-promoter are key. If you aren't business-minded or good at marketing yourself, you probably do need a good rep.

Simply having your name and portfolio on the Web site of a major rep is great promotion, because buyers know that when they're looking for photographers they can see top talent shooting a variety of styles with one tour of…
