Art, History and the Senses: 1830 to the Present
Patrizia Di Bello, Gabriel Koureas
Ashgate Pub., 2010 - Art - 199 pages
Should sight trump the other four senses when experiencing and evaluating art? Art, History and the Senses questions whether the authority of the visual in visual culture should be deconstructed, and focuses on the roles of touch, taste, smell, and sound in works of art at specific moments in their history. The collection re-evaluates sensory knowledge and experience in the arts and encourages re-engagement with notions of style and form.
