    • 2.1: Introduction
      By the 1600s, European countries had traveled across the oceans finding new routes and commodities, trying to dominate and control different regions. This became the period of settlements, establishing new communities to expand their territory and power.
    • 2.2: Dutch Golden Age (1600 – 1672)
      The merchant class became wealthy, giving them extra income. Located on the Atlantic as one of the major gateways to Europe, the trading routes to Asia, and the new shipping lanes to the new world, the Netherlands controlled much of the import and export business.
    • 2.3: Baroque (1600 – 1740)
      After the Crusades, famines, and plagues of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance period brought new changes in the possibility of human invention and exploration. By the Baroque period, European societies were expanding, conquering other territories, and urbanizing their cities.
    • 2.4: Mughal and Rajput (1530 – Late 18th century)
      During the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, artwork in India was based on three different religious principles, Islamic, Hindu, or Buddhism, illustrating India's culture and beauty.
    • 2.5: Qing Dynasty (1636 - 1911)
      When the Manchus from the northern part of China descended into the south, they overtook the Ming dynasty, starting the Qing dynasty with a set of rulers that endeared for almost three hundred years.
    • 2.6: Joseon Dynasty (Late 15th century - 1868)
      Joseon (also transcribed as "Choson") was a period of scientific and technological inventions and cultural efflorescence. Founded in 1392 by Yi Seong-gye[1] and lasting until 1910, Korean artistic identity developed as distinct from China and Japan.
    • 2.7: Native American (1600 – 1800s)
      Native groups lived across North America and were as diverse in languages, traditions, rituals, and artwork as any population of people covering a large geographic area. With any populace in the world, their artwork was created using materials found in the people's location and culture.
