Homage (arts)

Homage or hommage (/ˈhɒmɪ/ or /ˈɒmɪ/) is a show or demonstration of respect or dedication to someone or something, sometimes by simple declaration but often by some more oblique reference, artistic or poetic.[1] The term is often used in the arts, where one author or artist shows respect to another by allusion or imitation; this is often spelled and pronounced like the original French hommage (/ˈmɑːʒ/).[2]
