Thesis Abstract art is very difficult to define, as its definition is very broad, however it’s ultimately a form of expression conveying feeling and emotion that will continue to grow in popularity.
Ask Your Self YES? NO? Heller
“The main point is that all sorts of visual art – like all kinds of music, literature, film, dance, and theater – can be a source of tremendous pleasure. Traditional paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and photo-graphs have long been appreciated in this way; my intent here is to make it clear that art with no apparent subject matter, and even art that is difficult to recognize, at first, as art, can also provide viewers with great intellectual stimulation and sheer, visceral joy” (Heller 11).
Clarification Debate Heller
“In terms of visual art, avant-garde has generally been applied to the leaders of convention-breaking modern movements” (Heller 14).
