ready Art & Architecture Thesaurus

Abbreviation: AAT

General Information
The Getty Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) is a thesaurus containing generic terms, dates, relationships, sources, and notes for work types, roles, materials, styles, cultures, techniques, and other concepts related to art, architecture, and other cultural heritage. The AAT is one of 5 Getty Vocabularies intended to provide terminology and other information about the objects, artists, concepts, and places important to various disciplines that specialize in art, architecture, and other material culture. The AAT contains generic terms; it contains no iconographic subjects and no proper names. That is, each concept is a case of many (a generic thing), not a case of one (a specific thing).
