Art criticism


core definition

Art criticism is the practice of using aesthetic criteria to analyse works of art.


explanatory context

Most conventional art criticism tends to focus on form and style, rather than content.


analytical review

Donald Kuspit (undated) states:

Art criticism, the analysis and evaluation of works of art. More subtly, art criticism is often tied to theory; it is interpretive, involving the effort to understand a particular work of art from a theoretical perspective and to establish its significance in the history of art.
