  • American Scene - Movement of American figurative painting active from the 1920s to the 1940s, committed to the establishment of a genuinely American art by the realistic depiction of contemporary American life and the repudiation of contemporary nonrealist styles introduced by the Armory Show.
  • artists - People who produce work in the visual arts. For those in the performing arts, see "performing artists."
  • 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.
  • group portraits - Portraits depicting two or more individuals.
  • portraits
  • portraits - Representations of real individuals that are intended to capture a known or supposed likeness, usually including the face of the person. For representations intended to be anonymous, or of fictional or mythological characters, see "figures (representations)."
  • social realism - Refers to works depicting realistic situations with tones of social protest, common especially in the 1930s and 1940s. For the representational art in Communist countries sanctioned by the government, use "Socialist Realist."
  • studios - Working places set aside for artists to work. The term is generally applied to workspaces used by artists creating fine art, particularly art dating from the 16th century to the present. The characteristics of a studio may be dictated by the practical requirements of adequate light, ample space in which to create the work of art, and storage of materials. Display of the finished art works and training may also be accommodated in a studio. Creation of an art work may require a range of artistic processes; therefore, separate areas of work may be delegated in the studio. The term may also refer to spaces used by dancers, singers, musicians, and other performing artists to create or practice. The term "workshops" is generally refers to spaces used by craftspeople, artists working prior to the 16th century, and industrial workers. For studios that are larger spaces or complexes, and are used to create films, television or radio programs, or other large scale productions, use "motion picture studios," "broadcasting studios," "sound studios," "recording studios," "radio studios," or "television studios."
