Art history began to be established in the 18th C. In A BRIEF HISTORY OF PAINTING by Roy Bolton, I've read: "The history of painting is the history of humanity's struggle to come to terms with its predicament. The reasons we're interested in art are the same reasons why we are interested in religion, philosophy or science. This is why great art is never only about beauty; it is also about the recognizably valuable human experience that it transfers from one person to another."
