ARS300 | Intro to Art and Popular Culture Unit 1 : What is Art? Purposes & Principles of Art & Design 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. Reading Assignment
