Works of art and exhibits typically have titles attached to them ? usually just one, but sometimes several. Sometimes these titles make sense and match the art; other times they are more like labels for cataloging purposes.A study of titles of works of art might be related to what is known as onomastics, which is the study of the origins and forms of proper names and terms used in specialized fields, or the system that underlies the formation and use of proper names or terms used in specialized fields.Quote: "I like to go to art museums and name the untitled paintings... Boy With Pail... Kitten On Fire." Steven Wright, contemporary American comedian. Also see nomenclator, placeholder, and text.
