A feel for the world book
Despite the flowering (or fragmenting) of art into a multitude of styles and forms in the twentieth century, Western aesthetics remains overwhelmingly visual.1
Picasso’s multi-perspectival figures, Pollock’s paint-splattered canvases, Rauschenberg’s all-white paintings, Warhol’s pop art, among other prototypical manifestations of modern art, have greatly expanded our notions of art and representation, but only within the sensory field of sight. The aesthetic role of vision has, if anything, increased in the twentieth century due to such technological developments as color photography, the cinema, television, and computer graphics.
