Once their authenticity is established, paintings, scultpures, drawings, prints, and photographs are classified by category. Since the 18th century, art historians have classified works first according to cultural and geographic provenance, then by medium, and finally by date of execution and artist's name. This system of classification enables specialists to observe the evolution of art. Among galleries classifying their collections according to these principles is the MacKenzie Art Gallery.
