The Language Metaphor in Art.
Osborne, Harold
Journal of Aesthetic Education, v18 n1 p9-20 Spr 1984
A language system comprises a grammar and a lexicon. Fine art has no lexicon and, therefore, no grammar. Graphic or auditory expressions become artistic material only when attention is given to the expression itself rather than to its meaning. Representational works of art do sometimes incidentally work as channels of communication. (RM)
