Compiled by the women behind the Art History Babes podcast, this no-nonsense reference book sets out to break down the elitist world of ‘artspeak’ with simple definitions of over 300 important art terms. From avant-garde to oeuvre, the Harlem Renaissance to New Objectivity, museum fatigue to ‘memento mori’, the Babes use humour and candour to explain even the most complex ideas in bite-sized definitions. Impress your fellow guests at parties (remember them?) with this valuable starter pack to the study of art history.
