The Pulse of Modernism: Physiological Aesthetics in Fin-de-Siècle Europe

Copertina anteriore
University of Washington Press, 1 mag 2015 - 384 pagine

Robert Brain traces the origins of artistic modernism to specific technologies of perception developed in late-nineteenth-century laboratories. Brain argues that the thriving fin-de-siècle field of “physiological aesthetics,” which sought physiological explanations for the capacity to appreciate beauty and art, changed the way poets, artists, and musicians worked and brought a dramatic transformation to the idea of art itself.
