Art and Life in Aestheticism by Kelly Comfort

Book Description

Art for art's sake addresses the relationship between art and life. Although it has long been argued that aestheticism aims to de-humanize art, this volume seeks to consider the counterclaim that such de-humanization can also lead to re-humanization and to a deepened relationship between the aesthetic sphere and the world at large.

European Aestheticism and Spanish American Modernismo by Kelly Comfort European Aestheticism and Spanish American Modernismo, Hardback (June 2011)

Locating a shared interest in the philosophy of "art for art's sake" in aestheticism and modernismo, this study examines the changing role of art and artist during the turn-of-the-century period, offering a consideration of the multiple dichotomies of art and life, aesthetics and economics, production and consumption, and center and periphery.
