This page is a collection of common terms and acronyms used frequently in CARI discussion.

While we do not track artistic movements from before 1970, older artistic movements can be influences on modern aesthetics that our project does track. For this reason, we provide a glossary of architecture and fine art terminology to help make our aesthetic descriptions more accessible.

Many of the fine art descriptions are quotations or paraphrasings from Wikipedia, and we have linked to their articles appropriately.
We have found this sufficient for forming an intuitive understanding of an art movement in our discussion context, but we strongly recommend seeking more comprehensive resources if you plan on a proper exploration involving these movements.
