ARS300 | Intro to Art and Popular Culture IV. Style, Form, and Content Lecture A finished work of art can be understood through the study of style, form, and  content. Style refers to the characteristic methods of expression or design used  by a particular artist, movement, or culture. Form refers to everything the viewer  sees  in a work of art (in other words, the visual elements, composition, etc.).  Content refers to everything contained in a work of art, including the form, the  subject matter and meanings it conveys. The term iconography is often used  interchangeably with iconology to describe the meaning or symbols in a work of  art. Iconography and content are usually culture-specific and can change over  time, as the examples in your book illustrate. As you read, try to extend the concepts and apply them to what you know about  the study images for Chapters 1, 2 and 3.
