Summary
  • "When Giorgio Vasari invented the new literary form of art history, he attempted the first definition of style because, he believed, style gave structure to history. Artists signaled, with style, essential information about themselves and their place in history: their character, their political alliances, their ideas about art. However, these signals, being visual and embedded in mimetic forms, were inherently ambiguous and divergently interpreted even by the most visually literate audiences. For Vasari, and for later art writers working in his shadow, style slipped through their verbal nets."
  • "In this study, Philip Sohm explains the verbal strategies for defining style and why they usually met with failure. He explains discussions of style from Vasari to Baldinucci, showing the linguistic dimensions of visual perception and how concepts of language shaped ideas of style."--Jacket
