humanities noun
studies intended to provide general knowledge and intellectual skills
(rather than occupational or professional skills); "the college of arts and
sciences" [syn: humanistic discipline, liberal arts, arts]
Source: WordNet (r) 2.0


I suggest rephrasing your sentence around some synonyms, or perhaps
something like, Understanding art history is an invaluable underpinning of
the Humanities.
