Meaning: entender - know

Entender means understand, but in this example: Ella entiende de arte. - means: She knows about art. Why?

Thank you so much!

Hola Emma

In this specific context and structure the meaning is different to the general meaning of "understanding" when you say for example: "No entiendo tu pregunta" (I don't understand your question). 

We use "entender + de + [algo]" meaning "to know about something, to have some knowledge about something, to be familiar with some topic..." like in this sentence about "arte".

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos
