Catalogue Raisonné Glossary
literally, from French, "reasoned catalogue". According to the OED, it is "a descriptive catalogue arranged according to subjects, or branches of subjects; hence, generally or loosely, a classified or methodical list." Used in the IFAR database to refer to a thorough, reasoned and systematic documentation of all works by an artist – the oeuvre – in a given medium (such as painting, sculpture, prints) known at the time when the catalogue is prepared.
a brief list of an artist's works without lengthy commentary or explanation, often included in exhibition catalogues. Generally, not as substantive as the entries in a catalogue raisonné, but for some artists it is all that is available.
a sequential list or table of important dates in the artist's life and career
a table cross-referencing an earlier listing or previous catalogue raisonné of the artist's work
literally, a body of material. Used in the database to refer to a series of focused publications, not necessarily by the same author, on one artist, e.g. Corpus Rubenianum.
used in the database to refer to a republication of a book (catalogue), with additional entries, corrections, or other amendments, as opposed to a "reprint."
Fascicule (or fascicle)
an installment of a printed work; one part of a book that was issued serially (as opposed to a volume in a three-volume publication)
refers to prints (including lithographs, woodcuts, engravings and etchings), and, sometimes, to drawings and other works on paper
The place, publisher's name, and date of publication for a catalogue
International Standard Book Number, the unique number assigned to a book upon publication, with some digits referencing the particular publisher
