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.
