“Manner of,” “Style of”

“’Manner of,’ ‘Style of’: In describing a work of art, ‘in the manner/style of’ refers to stylistic similarity to the artist named, but not necessarily direct influence. Compare ‘follower of,’ ‘circle of,’ ‘school,’ ‘workshop.'”

Excerpted from: Diamond, David G. The Bulfinch Pocket Dictionary of Art Terms. Boston: Little Brown, 1992.
