Classification of Visual Art: A Philosophical Myth and its Historyby Tiffany Sutton
Pub. Date: 02/28/2015
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book is an important and original contribution to the philosophy of art that bridges the disciplines of philosophy and art. It engages with a long-standing debate about what it is that bestows the designation "art" on an artwork. Tiffany Sutton shows how the history of art should influence the classification of visual art. She considers the various theories that have been put forward to define the nature of the artwork and then offers her own set of classificatory norms.
