Unqualified headings for art forms, such as Drawing, and headings for art forms qualified by time period, such as Sculpture, Modern, are not covered by the lists of period subdivisions.

 

CONFLICTS: Any subdivision listed here can be used as a free-floating subdivision under any heading belonging to the category if it is appropriate and no conflict exists in the subject authority file. Subject authority records may exist for headings employing variant phrases or subdivisions equivalent to subdivisions on this list.

LC practice:
If an exceptional variant form is to be retained, make a UF reference from the equivalent free-floating subdivision form following the procedures in H 195 if the reference does not yet exist. Otherwise, submit a proposal to change the variant form along with all bibliographic records requiring correction following the procedures in H 193.

 

NEW SUBDIVISIONS: Establish new subdivisions under Art, Italian whenever possible. Establish subdivisions appropriate only to the art of China, Japan, or Korea under Art, Chinese; Art, Japanese; or Art, Korean.
