About Artlex

Welcome to Artlex.com.  We are the definitive fine art resource on the web, with a history dating back to 1996!

Artlex started as, and continues to be, an art dictionary.  We still maintain a large list of art terms and concepts along with their definitions, supporting images, cross-references and other relevant information.  We hope to build this art dictionary to be the most comprehensive art encyclopedia on the web today.

As we move away from just a dictionary, and more a complete encyclopedic resource for everything art related, we’ve branched out to include a curated collection of artwork and artist information, as well as buying guides and other helpful resources for artists, students, teachers, and collectors.

Thanks so much for visiting and if you have any questions, please reach out to admin [at] artlex.com.
