    Sammanfattning : This thesis brings together a fascination with the city and a keen interest in the knowledge process. The point of departure is the bodily, sensory and emotional experience. That the author uses her own perceptions and experiences and is preoccupied with her own knowledge process means that she writes herself into an autoethnographic context. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Art of Pleasing the Eye Portraits by Nicolas de Largillierre and Spectatorship with Taste for Colour in the Early Eighteenth Century

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Culture and Aesthetics, Stockholm University

    Författare :Roussina Roussinova; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; spectatorship; pleasure; meaning; body and mind; senses; illusion; imagination; touch; colour; attention; attraction; detail; display; portraiture; art theory; amateur; conversation; honnêteté; performativity; Nicolas de Largillierre; Roger de Piles; konstvetenskap; Art History;

    Sammanfattning : This study examines the interaction between portraits by the exponent of French colourist painting Nicolas de Largillierre (1656–1745) and elite spectatorship in the early eighteenth century as enactment of the idea of painting as an art of pleasing the eye. As developed in the theory of art of Roger de Piles (1635–1709), the idea of painting as an art of pleasing the eye coexisted with the classicist view, which in turn emphasised the potential of painting to communicate discursive meanings and hence to engage the mind.
