Hints:

Subjects in this section are for historical works or for works discussing technique from a fine art (as opposed to craft) viewpoint. For works about collecting art or art objects, use subjects in the ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES section. For works discussing technique from a craft viewpoint, use subjects in the CRAFTS & HOBBIES section. For works on general principles of design that can be applied to various disciplines (such as art, architecture, crafts, and technology), use subjects in the DESIGN section.

Use subjects beginning with "ART / Techniques" for works on the techniques involved within a given discipline and use subjects beginning with "ART / History" for works consisting largely of reproductions of artworks and/or works on the history of art. Be aware that some disciplines have an unsubdivided term and a related term beginning with "ART / Techniques" (e.g., "ART / Sculpture & Installation" and "ART / Techniques / Sculpting"). In these cases, the unsubdivided term should be used for pictorials and works on the history of that discipline and not for books on technique.

Subjects beginning with "ART / Subjects & Themes" are generally meant to be used for works discussing and/or illustrating the subjects and themes specified; however, these subjects can also be assigned to works on the techniques used to produce art depicting these subjects and themes. If a subject beginning with "ART / Subjects & Themes" is used in this way, it is recommended that a subject beginning with "ART / Techniques" be assigned as well.

Subjects beginning with "ART / History" may be used for works on the history of Western or non-Western art. The fact that some subjects beginning with "ART / History" only apply to Western art does not mean that all subjects beginning with "ART / History" only apply to Western art. Subjects such as "ART / African", "ART / Asian" or "ART / European" can also be assigned, and should especially be assigned when this information is not implied by an "ART / History" subject.

Use "ART / Color Theory" for theoretical works on color and use "ART / Techniques / Color" for practical works on techniques for using color in art.
