  • Art Criticism
    • Art criticism refers to making discriminating judgments
    • Three basic theories
      • Formal theories which focus attention on composition and how an artwork is influenced by past works of art
      • Contextual theories which consider art as a prodct of a culture and value system
      • Expressive theories which pay attention to the artist’s expression of a personality or world view
  • Formal Theories
    • Looks carefully at how the composition come together to create a visual experience
    • They believe that the most important influence on an artwork is past artwork that the artist has seen or studied
    • The subject or theme of the work is less important
    • The date of when the work was made is very important

  • Contextual Theories
    • Contextual theorist look and the environment that the artwork was made in. The cultural values, politics, economy…
    • They tend to ask the question: What was going on in the culture at that time?
  • Expressive Theories
    • All artwork is made by people. The skill level, personal intent, emotional state, gender, etc will effect the creative process
    • The most important information to expressive theorists is: Who made the artwork?
    • They are looking for psychological insight, personal meanings
