Thinking About... Art History
With Rose Aiden

Art history is the study of aesthetic objects and visual expression in historical and stylistic context. Traditionally, the discipline of art history emphasized painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, ceramics and decorative arts, yet today, art history examines broader aspects of visual culture, including the various visual and conceptual outcomes related to an ever-evolving definition of art. Art history encompasses the study of objects created by different cultures around the world and throughout history that convey meaning, importance or serve usefulness primarily through visual representations.

Rose Aiden founded Art History Link-Up in 2016. She has extensive experience of teaching in the state-supported and independent sectors, most recently at James Allen’s Girls’ School, which supports the Charity. She has a teaching qualification and undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in Art History. As a consultant for the cultural sector and a freelance editor and writer, Rose has written for a wide range of publications including The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, and Evening Standard and has worked for commercial and non-profit arts organisations, including Arts Council England, the Association for Art History, the BBC and Sotheby’s.
