Example text

The relationship, therefore, between a painting and perceptible reality is never virginal, but is instead a question of shared views, of conventions. Only for the technique of perspective does Gombrich make an exception: he strongly objects (op. 3 The Imitation Theory: From Idealism to Realism 25 Fig. 4 Anonymous English painter, Derwentwater in the direction of Borrowdale, 1826. Lithography. Victoria and Albert Museum, London. , 257). 2 A Second Fundamental Criticism of the Imitation Theory: Nelson Goodman Even more radical is Nelson Goodman’s criticism in Languages of Art, in which he attempts to pull out the imitation theory by its roots.

This is his philosophical starting point and has enormous consequences for his conception of beauty. The world of Ideas does not only stand for perfection, for actual reality, but also for truth, which, to Plato, is the yardstick of beauty. In other words: that which is true, is beautiful. The highest beauty is not to be found in physical or spiritual beauty, but in the pure Form or Idea. Only the pure Idea of beauty is true beauty. All other forms of beauty are merely beautiful to the extent that they resemble – or are an imitation of – this pure Idea of beauty.

Against the mimesis theory the imitation theory (in the strict sense) no longer suggests that art should be guided by ideal images of beauty. Its only requirement is that art renders the concrete, sensibly perceptible reality as faithfully as possible. As I said in my introduction, this has marked a definitive separation between the imitation theory proper and the original mimesis theory, as it was upheld by Plato as well as by Plotinos, and which was firmly embedded in idealism. I have already discussed how important Plato’s idealistic starting point was.
