Example text

We can take an interest in the fact that she is in a state of great tension and finds her body loathsome and also take an interest in the way in which the painter has organized the details of the painting to produce just that impression. Indeed, Wollheim has argued that this twofoldedness of our interest, a simultaneous interest both in what is represented and in the manner of its representation, is essential to our dealings with painting as an art form. To do this we must detach ourselves from questions of real existence and, by an act of imagination, engage with a picture-figure.

I have not dealt with John Dewey’s important Art as experience (New York: Putnam, 1934). This is touched on in the Collinson contribution to Hanfling’s Philosophical aesthetics (pp. 150–6). Alexander, John Dewey’s theory of art, experience and nature (Albany: State University of New York Press, 1987). Beardsley who sketches an account of aesthetic experience in Beardsley (1958), pp. 527–43. Croce, incidentally, 35 ANGLO-KANTIAN ATTITUDES thought that much of Dewey’s work in aesthetics was derivative from Crocean aesthetics, in which case what I shall say about Croce in Chapters 3 and 5 will apply also to Dewey.

But again there is nothing to be said for the view that paintings generally take people in or are generally meant to do so. Even trompe l’oeil takes one in only momentarily. What would its point be, if never detected with a smile of admiration? Representation as copying Accounts of art as imitation sometimes suggest that imitation is a kind of copying. Copying can happen in the course of imitation. I can imitate your walk or your signature by copying it. But the notion of copying is neither general enough, nor good enough, nor creative enough to capture our dealings with art.
