Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What exactly is neoexpressionism? the difference between applique and appliqué? 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.

Synopsis:

A revised and redesigned edition of a classic work of reference, to keep the user up to date with the ever-changing vocabulary of the art world. Over 2000 entries embrace everything from painting, sculpture and architecture to photography, the graphic arts and computer imaging.

Synopsis:

"A richly illustrated paperback that provides useful information on a wide range of art and design history, theory and practice ... Scholarly yet accessible, and should prove invaluable to teachers and students alike."--
