Philosophizing Art: Selected Essays

Philosophizing Art: Selected Essays
Library Shelf Location 05.DANT
Publication Date Mar 2001
Description These essays explore the relationship between art and philosophy through a number of concrete cases in which either artists are driven by philosophical agendas, or their art is seen as solving philosophical problems in visual terms. The essays cover a varied terrain, with subjects including Giotto's use of olfactory data in "The Raising of Lazarus"; chairs in art and chairs as art; Mel Bochner's Wittgenstein drawings; the work of Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, and Robert Irwin; Louis Kahn as "Archai-Tekt"; and visual truth in film. Also featured are a meditation on the battle of Gettysburg; and a celebration of the Japanese artist Shiko Munakata, an essay that is partly autobiographical.
