  2. 2. The Art of Pleasing the Eye Portraits by Nicolas de Largillierre and Spectatorship with Taste for Colour in the Early Eighteenth Century

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Culture and Aesthetics, Stockholm University

    Author : Roussina Roussinova; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; spectatorship; pleasure; meaning; body and mind; senses; illusion; imagination; touch; colour; attention; attraction; detail; display; portraiture; art theory; amateur; conversation; honnêteté; performativity; Nicolas de Largillierre; Roger de Piles; konstvetenskap; Art History;

    Abstract : This study examines the interaction between portraits by the exponent of French colourist painting Nicolas de Largillierre (1656–1745) and elite spectatorship in the early eighteenth century as enactment of the idea of painting as an art of pleasing the eye. As developed in the theory of art of Roger de Piles (1635–1709), the idea of painting as an art of pleasing the eye coexisted with the classicist view, which in turn emphasised the potential of painting to communicate discursive meanings and hence to engage the mind.

What occurs with a body in the act of listening? How do sound and voice structure audio-visual-spatial relations in concrete situations?This doctoral thesis in fine arts consists of six artworks and an essay that documents the research process, or rather, acts as a travelogue as it stages and narrates a series of journeys into a predominantly sonic ecology.
