Intaglio printmaking: the image is incised into a surface and the incised line or sunken area holds the ink. It is the direct opposite of a relief print. Vaulted: covered with an arch-shaped ceiling or roof Stylized: art that represents objects in an exaggerated way to emphasize certain aspects of the object Trompe l’oeil: an extreme kind of illusion meant to deceive the viewer that the objects included are real Nave: the central space of a cathedral or basilica The Passion: the arrest, trial, and execution of Jesus Christ, and his sufferings during them Still life: a scene of inanimate objects, such as fruits, flowers, or motionless animals Pilaster: a vertical element, square in shape, that provides architectural support for crossing horizontal elements in post-and-lintel construction Linear Outline: a line that clearly separates a figure from its surroundings Memento Mori: Latin phrase that means “remember that you must die.” In artworks, such symbols as skulls, flowers, and clocks are used to represent the transient nature of life on Earth. Atrium : a central, normally public, interior space, first used in Roman houses Lintel: the horizontal beam over the doorway of a portal Cubism : twentieth-century art movement that favored a new perspective emphasizing geometric forms Ziggurat: Mesopotamian stepped tower, roughly pyramid-shaped, that diminishes in size toward a platform summit Pointillism: a late nineteenth-century painting style using short strokes or points of differing colors that optically combines to form new perceived colors Fresco: a painting done rapidly in watercolor on wet plaster on a wall or ceiling, so that the colors penetrate the plaster and become fixed as it dries. Mural: a painting or other work of art executed directly on a wall Abstract Expressionism: a mid-twentieth-century artistic style characterized by its capacity to convey intense emotions using non-representational images Optical mixture: when the eye blends two colors that are placed near each other, creating a new color Idealized: represented as perfect in form or character, corresponding to an ideal Foreshortening: a perspective technique that depicts a form at a very oblique (ofen dramatic)

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
