The Department of History of Art at Cambridge began life in 1970 and the present History of Art undergraduate degree dates from that time.

By then, Cambridge had already been a major centre for the production, collection, and study of art and architecture for centuries.

Our research interests include British architecture, medieval art and architecture, renaissance and early modern art and architecture, 20th-century art and theory and western and non-western cultural exchange.
