Online Highlights from History of Art at University of York

Looking for ways to access quality art experiences online?

How about taking an in-depth digital tour of these exhibitions?

They were all co-curated by members of the Department of History of Art here at York, in collaboration with the galleries where they were originally on show; and they offer a ‘real’ exhibition experience as an alternative to stepping out in these unprecedented times.

Turner and the Whale (Hull Maritime Museum) – visit the exhibition and read more about the project.

Three Graces: Victorian Women, Visual Art and Exchange (V&A) – visit the exhibition and read more about the project.

William Etty: Art and Controversy (York Art Gallery) – visit the exhibition and read more about the project.

Or immerse yourself in medieval England through these two amazing projects:

1414: John Neuton and the Re-Foundation of York Minster Library (York Minster) –  visit the project website and read more about it.

This digital archive not only provides a detailed history of the collection, it also allows you to leaf through the medieval texts with a transcript alongside. 

St Stephen’s Chapel, Westminster: Visual & Political Culture, 1292-1941 (Houses of Parliament) –  visit the project website and read more about it.

This website gives visitors the opportunity to fully engage with this building at every stage of its history, as well as take an immersive 360° tour of the chapel at its most technicolour, in the 1360s.
