Description

This book, one of the Hogarth Essays, explores the relationship between psycho- analysis and aesthetic appreciation. Fry suggests that further investigation ought to be done into the nature of "pure artistic feeling," though he is hesitant to draw his own conclusions about this using a strictly psycho-analytic framework.
