The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms, Paperback

The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms Paperback

Part of the World of Art S. series



What exactly is neoexpressionism? the difference between applique and applique? the part of a city known as the acropolis? or the painting technique called gouache? In this authoritative and concise dictionary, more than 2,000 entries embrace the vast vocabulary of painting and sculpture, architecture and photography, and the decorative, applied and graphic arts.

The hundreds of illustrations and diagrams play a vital role as information: art movements become immediately recognizable by a representative painting, and the defining features of each order of architecture are identifiable at a glance.

This revised edition features a substantial number of new entries, including today's influential artist groups and tendencies from Chicano art to gene art, and new terms connected with the use of computer technology in the art world, from digital image to pixel.
