- figure-ground perception - In an image, the way in which an object or shape is related to the background against which it is seen.
- instruments - Tools used for delicate or precision work.
- lutes - Use specifically for plucked chordophones developed in the European Renaissance, having a large pear-shaped body composed of thin, narrow ribs, a flat top, central circular soundhole covered by a rose, and from seven to ten frets on the neck. For the general class of all chordophones with the plane of the strings running parallel to the resonator and a neck that serves both as string bearer and as handle, see "lutelike chordophones."
- music - The discipline of combining vocal or instrumental sounds to produce beauty of form, harmony, melody, rhythm, expressive content, etc.; musical composition, performance, analysis, etc., as a subject of study; the occupation or profession of musicians.
- oil painting - The art or practice of producing creative works in oil paint, which is pigment suspended in vegetal drying oils. It dates from at least the Middle Ages in Europe, and was widely adopted for easel painting by the fifteenth century.
- oil paintings - Creative works in the medium of oil paint.
- 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)."
- still lifes - Images in which the focus is a depiction of inanimate objects, as distinguished from art in which such objects are subsidiary elements in a composition.The term is generally applied to depictions of fruit, flowers, meat or dead game, vessels, eating utensils, and other objects, including skulls, candles, and hourglasses, typically arranged on a table. Such images were known since the time of ancient Greece and Rome; however, the subject was exploited by some 16th-century Italian painters, and was highly developed in 17th-century Dutch painting, where the qualities of form, color, texture, and composition were valued, and the images were intended to relay allegorical messages. The subject is generally seen in oil paintings, though it can also be found in mosaics, watercolors, prints, collages, and photographs. The term originally included paintings in which the focus was on living animals at rest, although such depictions would now be called "animal paintings."
- woodwind instruments - Traditional name for Western orchestral or concert flutes, recorders, clarinets, and oboes.
