Aesthetics and Painting introduces and opens up current debates and ideas in the aesthetics of painting. At the book's centre is an investigation of the complex relationship between what a painting depicts and the means by which it is depicted. The book looks at: classical theories of mimesis; the relationship between the painted surface and the depicted subject; problems of reference and denotation; the analysis of pictorial style; painting as an historically reflexive and self-critical practice; the emergence of fully abstract art; the most recent technological and aesthetic developments and their implications; the contemporary challenges to painting.A sophisticated treatment of major ideas in art and philosophy, Aesthetics and Painting remains highly readable throughout, offering a clear and coherent account of the nature of painting as an art form.
