LexArt. Les mots de la peinture  is a dictionary of terms and notions, describing painting as it was practised in France, Germany, England and the Netherlands in the 17th and 18th centuries, in a synchronous approach to artistic discourse and practice. The writings on art constitute the mental, intellectual and visual universe, which makes it possible to better apprehend the work of art, and shape the eye to better see. The purpose of this book is to highlight the stakes of the uses in different contexts in time and space, in a confrontation of ways of thinking, painting and looking. Seventy-seven essays cover nearly two hundred and fifty concepts.

The English edition will be published in autumn 2018.

The book is available in paper-version on the Presses universitaires de la Méditerranée website (24 €) www.pulm.fr
