Any visual artist knows they don’t have to say a word when it comes to describing their art. Sure, let the art speak for itself. But it doesn’t hurt to have a glossary of art terms that could be applied to any given piece of art. That’s why we’ve compiled an art history glossary of must-know vocab to use when describing art. It will come in handy when you are at the museum or watching the latest art documentary, or describing your own paintings and drawings.
