In this art dictionary like no other, The Art History Babes (the hosts behind the prolific podcast) break down the elitist world of art with definitions of over three hundred essential art terms.
Art speak is infamously alienating, strange, and confusing as hell. Think stereotypical, stylish art dealers who describe art as ‘derivative’ and ‘dynamic’—or stuffy auction houses filled with portraits of dead white people called ‘Old Masters’. What do these words mean? Where did they come from? And how can you actually use them? The Honest Art Dictionary spans art history, iconic movements, peculiar words, and pretentious phrases. After reading this book, you’ll be able to lay down that art jargon with the best of them.
