Notes for the Aesthetic Experience Lecture:
Critique: Starry Night
How is it organized?
Analysis has to do with pointing out the relationships among the things you and others can see in an artwork. Do they clash or harmonize? Are they balanced? Is there variety? Is there unity without monotony?
Critique: The Scream
What is it saying?
To interpret an artwork is to explain the meaning of it: What is it expressing? What is the content? This is perhaps the most creative part of criticism.
Sometimes we have to be indirect, to resort to the use of metaphor, to explain the meaning of a work.
In art, there is often "more to it than meets the eye."
