English → English (gcide) Definition: Artisan Artisan \Ar"ti*san\ (?; 277), n. [F. artisan, fr. L. artitus skilled in arts, fr. ars, artis, art: cf. It. artigiano. See Art, n.] 1. One who professes and practices some liberal art; an artist. [Obs.] [1913 Webster] 2. One trained to manual dexterity in some mechanic art or trade; and handicraftsman; a mechanic. [1913 Webster] This is willingly submitted to by the artisan, who can . . . compensate his additional toil and fatigue. --Hume. [1913 Webster] Syn: Artificer; artist. Usage: Artisan, Artist, Artificer. An artist is one who is skilled in some one of the fine arts; an artisan is one who exercises any mechanical employment. A portrait painter is an artist; a sign painter is an artisan, although he may have the taste and skill of an artist. The occupation of the former requires a fine taste and delicate manipulation; that of the latter demands only an ordinary degree of contrivance and imitative power. An artificer is one who requires power of contrivance and adaptation in the exercise of his profession. The word suggest neither the idea of mechanical conformity to rule which attaches to the term artisan, nor the ideas of refinement and of peculiar skill which belong to the term artist. [1913 Webster]
