Is it successful?
The purpose of evaluation is to determine the quality of a work.
The question is what criteria – what standards – should be used to decide whether an artwork is excellent?
Let's discuss some of the criteria critics have used:
Formalism uses the elements and principles of design as a criterion in art criticism.
Expressiveness refers to how effectively the work expresses or reflects a theme or worldview.
Originality is a judgment about the works inventiveness or novelty. Does it display a fresh theme, or a fresh treatment of an old theme? Is the medium unique in some way?
Is it successful?
There is no single cluster of criteria for judging excellence in art. Different kinds of art require different criteria, and there are different schools of thought about what is good art. Still, when you evaluate an artwork, state your reasons. Your reasons should be grounded in the information and analyses you assembled from the first three stages of this criticism method.
