TOPIC: Artist versus Artiste

Artist versus Artiste 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago  
What’s the difference you may ask?

Well, by way of a perfect illustration, here we go:

Think of the Beatles up to and including the day they did their last live performance on 29 August 1966. During that period of time they we’re both artists (recorded their creative output for consumption), and artistes (played live to hoards of screaming girls and noisy boys). Once they’d gotten away from the live circuit, they remained recording artists until that glorious they walked out onto the rooftop of Apple Corp in 1970 to perform “Get Back“ live.

The problem with these two words is that there isn’t a third word to describe a person or an ensemble that only make recorded output. Artists covers both scenarios, whereas artiste only covers one. I would suggest the safest course of action would be to use the word “artist” because it covers both bases, just like the music label United Artists. After all, it’s very unlikely that a famous live performer doesn’t record their music as well!

What do you think?
