With more than 1,700 entries, The Concise Dictionary of Art Terms is an accessible and comprehensive A-Z guide covering a wide range of terms from the visual art world, including periods, styles, materials, well-known schools, techniques, and much more. In this new edition, the text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, and has been expanded with more than 100 new entries, focusing primarily on modern and contemporary art materials and techniques. The Dictionary has been further enhanced with the addition of over 100 web links to selected entries, which are accessed and kept up to date via a companion website. These links add another dimension to the print book by allowing the reader to see illustrations of various materials and techniques, while providing easy access to important collections that are freely available online. From "abstract art" to "woodcuts," and "The Baroque Revival" to "ziggurats," this highly browsable dictionary is the ideal reference for students of art and all related subjects, for gallery visitors, and anyone else interested in the visual arts.
