I've been trying to tie in poets, musicians, and artists by the period in histoy that we're studying, and I had a blinding flash of the obvious this morning: Somebody else has probably already put this stuff together to save me time! (Aaagh! my eyes!)
Anyway, in case you're also stumbling around on the internet hoping for enlightenment, here are the excellent references I've found:
http://timelineindex.com/content/select/1401/1023,581,1401 (and I just noticed now that this page has EVERYTHING by timeline, so you can probably skip all the other pages I'm listing)
http://rpo.library.utoronto.ca/timeline (click the time period you want in the left-hand sidebar, and then scroll sideways to see them all)
This one's amazing! Artists are listed by Art Periods/Movements, with characteristics, chief artists and major works, and historical events in that time period
I've put together a cover image based on this collection, to give you glimpse of how I used it for our Prairie Primer studies. Hope you find these as helpful as I do!
