American art

DEFINITION

Art by inhabitants of the United States of America.People in the United States conventionally use "American" to mean "of the United States of America." Meanwhile, inhabitants of other countries in North and South America, the West Indies ? the entire Western Hemisphere ? have good reason to consider themselves "Americans" too. The author of ArtLex apologizes to that audience, hoping readers from these regions will understand that ArtLex is written from the point of view of its USA author, using the conventions of its predominantly USA audience. When referring to art associated with other American countries, ArtLex addresses them as Antiguan, Argentinian, Bahamian, Bolivian, etc.See Pre-Columbian art, American Indian art, American Colonial art, African American art, Hudson River school, Realism and realism, Luminism, American Impressionism, Ten American Painters, The Eight, Ashcan school, Synchromism, Art Deco, Harlem Renaissance, American Scene painting, social realism, New Deal art, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, Fluxus, Op Art, Minimalism, Earth art, Conceptual art, Neo-Geo, Post-Minimalism, architecture, arms & armor, ceramics, cinema, design, folk art, furniture, glass, illustration, photography, portrait, poster, sculpture, self-portrait, still life, tattoo, trompe l'oeil, vessel, and video, among many others.Quote: "The creation of the United States of America is the central event of the past 400 years."
