The Public cost of private ownership of artworks

Catharine Abell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

I argue that artworks are of public value because aesthetic experience of them contributes to the development of our aesthetic judgement. I use two accounts of aesthetic judgement to explore how it might do so and how the private ownership of artworks could affect the development of our aesthetic judgement.
