Loneliness as a Theme in Painting.
Cupchik, Gerald C.; Wroblewski-Raya, Vivian
Visual Arts Research, v24 n1 p65-71 1998
Examined viewer responses to paintings of solitary figures to show that when the theme of an artwork mirrors a person's personal concerns it may lead to a defensive intellectualizing response. Indicates that lonely subjects found the paintings to be personally meaningful but tended to need aesthetic distance from the paintings. (DSK)
