Two of my favourite little resources…and they are FREE! Nothing fancy – just very, very useful.
Tate Guide to Modern Art Terms
“Over 300 terms are defined with clarity and precision, putting themes, movements, media and art practices at your fingertips. Users can search the Tate Guide to Modern Art Terms app by artist, movement, technique or trend; view over 40 art works with pinch-and-zoom technology; share art terms via Twitter and Facebook; and create lists of favourite terms, making this the perfect accompaniment for visits to Tate Modern exhibitions and beyond.” Tate
‘If modern art and its arcane terminology leave you thinking it’s all a load of old Pollocks, this adroit little app will help to demystify modern and contemporary artworks and theories.’ Sunday Times
For many of us the language in which modern art is described is as mystifying as the art itself. This comprehensive but concise art dictionary is the answer. Each term is defined with clarity and precision, putting themes, movements, media and art practices at the reader’s fingertips.
