Short Video Clips of Museum Art and Objects

Smart History is a multi-media web book which was designed to be an enhancement to an art history book. It merged with Khan Academy in 2011.  It has a video section divided by time period with short 3 to 9 minute explanations of important objects like the seated scribe (2600 BCE) or Hammurabi Law code stele in the clip above. Both objects are in the Louvre.   These clips are great visuals and explanations that you can put on Blackboard as an assignment or show in class. You can find very good art history clips for the Renaissance and Industrial Revolution as well.  Check it out.
