web program is designed for teachers in grades K – 6. You’ll
find examples of historic landscapes, portraits and decorative
arts (identified here as furniture) from The Huntington Library,
Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California.
You and your students can explore these works together as you
wonder why artists create works, which details help us understand
art and how we might think like artists today.
