    I have really enjoyed these lectures which are very clear. As an art history graduate from UK, I found these refreshed and clarified my understanding of contemporary art. Got up to Hesse and Martin. Looking forward to remainder.

    Many thanks Professor Anderson!

    How great is technology that I can watch such an interesting and informative lecture on Art History without leaving my study! And how appreciative I am that Biola University makes it possible. And how I wish I had heard professors Anderson's lectures before I visited the great European museums! Did professor Anderson give a lecture on Arshile Gorky? And where on your web page can I find all your art lectures.

    Thx.
