Art Critics, historians, and studio artists can all make use of descriptions of art objects, the descriptions serving as surrogates of the art works for purposes of storing, searching, and analyzing them. Classically, these descriptions were in the form of verbal statements. Usually, these verbal statements were intended for use by other scholars. In recent years, it became possible to use these verbal descriptions as input data for computers that were intended to serve as aids in the analysis process. This enabled the extensively developed tradition of verbal analysis to be exploited for computer aided storage, search, and analysis of these surrogates.
