11/12: Art Criticism in the Enlightenment

For our readings on Tuesday, please review the following.

First, the Wikipedia entry for Jonathan Richardson.

Along with this background on Richardson, also read two brief selections from his An Essay on the Whole Art of Criticism as it Relates to Painting and an Argument in Behalf of the Science of a Connoisseur (1719).

Selection I: Richardson Two Discourses I.

Selection II: Richardson Two Discourses II.
