These new artists created in fresh, bold, revolutionary and even anti-aesthetic ways. Both were indifferent to edification and exaltation, both appealed to a kind of hard-edge thinking. It was for me a particularly exhilarating moment. I would have had no interest in being an artist in the new period. But I found it intoxicating to be a philosopher of art when art had shuffled off all the heavy metaphysical draperies the Abstract Expressionists were happy to wear as their intellectual garments, and were content to produce works that looked for all the world like commonplace objects of daily life.


It was this desire to erase the division between fine art and everyday objects by Pop Artists like Warhol and which harkens back to the readymades of Marcel Duchamp that obsessed Danto.

With his prime interest in language and the philosophical definition of art, Danto was the right philosophical man at the right time. Nelleza, Danto sees aesthetics at work on some level since the Brillo boxes were more pleasing and enjoyable to look at than the other Warhol boxes, for instance, the Heinz Ketchup boxes.

To underscore this visual enjoyment, Danto cites how, after a lifetime of living with all those drab government-issued boxes, the underground Soviet artists found the Pop Art absolutely beautiful! And yet beauty has almost entirely disappeared from artistic reality in the twentieth century, as if attractiveness was somehow a stigma, with its crass commercial implications.

It is a necessary condition for life as we would want to live it. That is why beauty, unlike the other aesthetic qualities, the sublime included, is a value. View all 11 zbuso. I was eel surprised at how fluently Danto writes!

He has a unique style, especially in comparison to other philosophers and art historians, who tend to use a kind of enigmatic metalanguage. Danto is much more blunt and even funny at certain times, yet arhuf ideas are immensely important, perhaps even revolutionary for art theory. This just spurred me to continue reading some of his other works.
