History of art is a richly stimulating AS and A level subject, in which pupils gain a sound understanding of the major periods of Western art history from antiquity to modernity, and develop the ability to articulate their ideas through lively class discussion and written analysis.
The ideal criteria for a prospective A level history of art student are a budding interest in material culture, an aptitude for visual analysis, a good written prose style and a keenness to read widely from the many books held in Bryanston’s excellent art history library.
A top-tier humanities subject, the history of art A level is an excellent pathway to a range of first-rate undergraduate degrees, postgraduate study and a wide array of professions in areas such as museums and art galleries, auction houses and commercial galleries, academia and teaching, travel and tourism, government arts management and journalism.
