Art in Theory (1648-1815) provides a wide-ranging and comprehensive collection of documents on the theory of art from the founding of the French Academy until the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Like its highly successful companion volumes, Art in Theory (1815-1900) and Art in Theory (1900-1990), its' primary aim is to provide students and teachers with the documentary material for informed and up-to-date study. Its' 240 texts, clear principles of organization and considerable editorial content offer a vivid and indispensable introduction to the art of the early modern period. Harrison, Wood and Gaiger have collected writing by artists, critics, philosophers, literary figures and administrators of the arts, some reprinted in their entirety, others excerpted from longer works. A wealth of material from French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and Latin sources is also provided, including many new translations. Among the major themes treated are early arguments over the relative merits of ancient and modern art, debates between the advocates of form and color, the beginnings of modern art criticism in reviews of the Salon, art and politics during the French Revolution, the rise of landscape painting, and the artistic theories of Romanticism and Neo-classicism. Each section is prefaced by an essay that situates the ideas of the period in their historical context, while relating theoretical concerns and debates to developments in the practice of art. Each individual text is also accompanied by a short introduction. An extensive bibliography and full index are provided.

Kunst ist eine Interaktion zwischen dem Menschen in seinem individuellen Sein, einem manifesten, flüchtigen und/oder eingebildeten Gegenstand und den Fremdeinwirkungen und Manipulationen der Umwelt. Dieses Thema behandelt die Autorin in vier Artikeln: Erstens diskutiert sie das Ineinander-Filzen von Kunst als Identität, als ästhetischem und musikalischem Ausdruck sowie als Marktinteresse und Politik. Zweitens diskutiert sie die Kunst im politischen Kontext. Kunst kann als strukturelles, visuelles, rhythmisches und akustisches Erlebnis zur Verführung, Manipulation und Hypnose der Menschen ge- und missbraucht werden. Drittens betrachtet sie Kunst im Kontext von Wirklichkeitswandlungen. Dieser Artikel konzentriert sich auf die theoretische Kunstdebatte und auf die Vermarktung der Kunst. Denn wenn Kunst nach dem Börsenwert definiert wird, wird die gesamte Kunstdebatte null und nichtig. Auf dem Markt kann alles über einen Leisten geschlagen werden. Hier gibt es keine Abgrenzungen zwischen dem Schönen, Banalen, Absurden, Grotesken, Phantastischen und der Fiktion. Kunst als reiner Marktwert wird in sich selber absurd. Das ist das Ende der Kunst. Ist das das Ende der Kunst? Kunst wurde im Laufe der Jahrtausende immer wieder zu Grabe getragen. Kunst als Teil des Lebens und einer Lebensvorstellung ist immer noch lebendig. Das ist das Thema des vierten Artikels.

This book examines the importance of the animal in modern art theory, using classic texts of modern aesthetics and texts written by modern artists to explore the influence of the human-animal relationship on nineteenth and twentieth century artists and art theorists. The book is unique due to its focus on the concept of the animal, rather than on images of animals, and it aims towards a theoretical account of the connections between the notions of art and animality in the modern age. Roni Grén’s book spans various disciplines, such as art theory, art history, animal studies, modernism, postmodernism, posthumanism, philosophy, and aesthetics.
