Realism and the riddle of style

Catharine Abell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


My concern in this paper is what, in 'Art and Illusion', Gombrich calls "the riddle of style". This is the problem of why people at different times and in different cultures have depicted objects in very different ways. An adequate solution to this problem will comprise an explanation of why depiction has a history.
