a dictionary of art terms
it's titled: ArtLex
You'll find it at:
I've been working on this for months, and just today I've completed the
posting of the first half-- entries from A through L. I'll have entries
through Z posted by some time in September. Over 2000 terms wiith definitions
will be listed at that point, with plenty of room to grow further. Next, I
want to add hyperlinks to other resources on the Web from within entries--
links to other texts, and to images. For example, when surrealism is
mentioned, there'll be a link to a site where it is discussed in greater
detail, along with images of artworks; when certain art tools are mentioned,
there might be a link to a site where they are illustrated, perhaps a catalog
of some supplier, etc.
PLEASE take a look, send me your reactions, and suggest improvements
How can YOU envision using ArtLex ?
How do you envision artists/students/educators you know using ArtLex ?
Can you suggest locations-- URLs-- to embed into parts of ArtLex linking to
other resouces on the Web?
Although I've been a student and teacher of art for over thirty years, I'm an
AMATEUR lexicographer, and I'd be thrilled to get your comments, suggestions
for additions and changes (and deletions!).
