Abstract :
Seeks to systematize the historical conceptions of vision that allowed painting of the Renaissance and later to form as it did. Distinguishes four modes of painting and their related observational stances: decorative (which dramatizes the difference between the image and the thing portrayed, to assert a sense of decorum), graphic (which seeks to capture the clear image of things as they are known or thought to be), optical (which paints things as they are seen and therefore takes into account notions of time and context), and textural (which interposes conspicuous facture and texture between the image and the viewer). ;
