Richard Wollheim is one of the dominant figures in the philosophy of art, having focused on two core, interrelated questions: How do paintings depict? and how do they express feelings? In this collection, a distinguished group of thinkers in the fields of art history and philosophical aesthetics offers a critical assessment of Wollheim's theory of art. In the final essay Wollheim himself responds to the contributors. This book will be eagerly sought out by all serious students of the theory of art, whether in departments of philosophy or art history.
