Rudolf Arnheim

psychologist, one of the founders of modern psychology of art
The dance, just as the performance of the actor, is kinesthetic art, art of the muscle sense. The awareness of tension and relaxation within his own body, the sense of balance that distinguishes the proud stability of the vertical from the risky adventures of thrusting and falling--these are the tools of the dancer.More Rudolf Arnheim quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It would be most wholesome if for at least twenty years art historians were forbidden to refer to any derivations. If they were not allowed to account for a work of art mainly by tracing where it comes from, they would have to deal with it in and by itself--which is what they are most needed for.More Rudolf Arnheim quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
