Met Timeline of Art History
There are a lot of times where you might need to find an example of a style or art work from a period, and you aren't looking for a specific artwork. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Timeline of Art History is a great basic resource for getting an overview of a specific part of art and architecture history.
The Timeline of Art History is generally a good starting point. If you're looking for an image with a certain type of style, but you don't really know any artist's names, you can find the style or period on the Timeline and use the information to search more specifically on other image databases such as ARTstor.
