Getty Vocabularies

Catherine wheel or rose window? Mona Lisa or La Gioconda? Gaochang or Qara-Hoja? The Getty Vocabularies contain structured terminology for art, architecture, decorative arts, archival materials, visual surrogates, conservation, and bibliographic materials. Compliant with international standards, they provide authoritative information for catalogers, researchers, and data providers. The Getty Vocabularies strive to be ever more multilingual, multi-cultural, and inclusive. The vocabularies grow through contributions from institutions and projects comprising the expert user community. In the new linked, open environments, the Getty Vocabularies may provide a powerful conduit for research and discovery for digital art history.
