- Ashcan School - Designates the style and movement of the early 1900s centralized on the portrayal of pedestrian and ordinary aspects of urban living. The style challenges the academic aesthetic of 'art for art's sake' and champions the idea of 'art for life' in the abandonment of learned techniques and the focus on the vitality and idiosyncrasies of everyday street life.
- lithographs - Prints made using the process of lithography, which is a planographic printing process in which a design is deposited on the stone or plate with a greasy substance which will accept ink.
- nudes - Representations of unclothed human figures.
- nudity - The absence of clothing, leaving those parts of the body that, in the cultural traditions of the viewer, are usually covered, exposed to view.
- women - Refers to female human beings from young adulthood through old age.
- zincography - Generally used for processes of preparing a printing surface on a zinc plate, either for lithography or etched for letterpress printing. When possible, use two expressions: the specific process term, such as "lithography," and "zinc" plus "printing plates."
