9780064302319: The Methodologies of Art: An Introduction (Icon Editions)

Works of art have been read in many ways since art history became an established academic discipline in the 19th century. The different ways of describing and interpreting art are the methodologies of artistic analysis. Since every work or art is an expression of its culture (time and place) and its maker (artist) and is dependent on its media (what it is made of) every work of art is extremely complex. The many methodologies reflect the many levels of meaning in an artistic image. This work surveys the main methodologies of artistic analysis - formal analysis, iconology and iconography, Marxism, Feminism, biography and autobiography. The final chapter considers three or four works of art from all the methodologies included.

Product Description:

Since the 19th century, when art history became an established academic discipline, works of art have been “read” in a variety of ways. These different ways of describing and interpreting art are the methodologies of artistic analysis, the divining rods of meaning.

Regardless of a work's perceived difficulty, an art object is, in theory, complex. Every work of art is an expression of its culture (time and place) and its maker (the artist) and is dependent on its media (what it's made of). The methodologies discussed here—formal analysis, iconology and iconography, Marxism, feminism, biography and autobiography, psychoanalysis, and structuralism—reflect the multiplicity of meanings in an artistic image.
