    He discounts decades of European art and completely disregards any non-European traditions, many of which don't adhere to Western ideas of representation.

More like centuries of European art since he completely disregarded medieval art.

That's a good point. I'd been thinking mainly of works produced after the neoclassical movement, but dismissing pre-Renaissance art is just as much of a mistake as dismissing all modern art.
