Paintings by the running meter - the yArtstick

On the yArtstick, the history of painting of the last 2000 years is depicted in 58 selected pictures. The selection process has yielded a mixture of world famous as well as lesser known motifs, which bring together the most important themes, techniques and temperaments. The line of images measures the centuries: From Roman funeral art and mosaics in the first centuries after Christ, through works of Islamic, Chinese and Mayan art, into the Renaissance and on to the Modern. Details of eyes and hands are consistent, interlacing motifs throughout the two millenniums. The yArtstick presents, in four-colour prints, highlights of 2000 years of painting history.
