Violence in Painting

Show Summary Details


Centres on a discussion of violence in painting. Recent discussions of the topic have tended to reduce it to gender issues—an approach so narrow as to warrant the term gendercentrism. The approach taken here, however, is one that builds on concepts broached in earlier chapters, and that emphasizes the possible interplay of imagination and aesthetic empathy even in the context of violent representation.

Keywords: aesthetic empathy; gendercentrism; imagination; painting; violence

Chapter.  6548 words.
