Aesthetic Description and Realism in Art Education.
Brown, Neil C. M.
Studies in Art Education, v30 n4 p212-24 Sum 1989
Looks at the usefulness of a stable realism for questions related to the description and understanding of art works. Explores two theories which may resolve the antagonism between representational meanings and their assertion as true properties of the work: (1) Wiggin's concept of authentic effect; and (2) Petit's theory of rectification and positioning.
