Home » Glossary » Genre

Genre in art refers to a specific category or type of artwork that is defined by its subject matter, style, or technique. Some common genres in art include landscape, still life, portrait, and historical painting. The use of genre allows artists, critics, and viewers to categorize and understand works of art, and can be used to explore and communicate a wide range of themes and ideas. The study of genre is an important aspect of art history and can provide valuable insights into the social, cultural, and historical contexts in which works of art were created.
