Abstract :
During the 19th c., critics interpreted the painter's mark or stroke in at least three different ways: as an imitation of appearances; as an expression of the identity and character of the artist (as if the mark were a kind of signature); and as an element in a self-referential pictorial order, in part determined by the physical nature of the artist's materials. The three interpretive possibilities correspond roughly to different historical moments and attitudes. Different political positions can also be associated with a 19th-c. critic's decision to emphasize either the 'natural,' the 'personal,' or the 'pictorial' mark. The response to Corot's painting becomes especially interesting in this regard, because his characteristic marks were seen in terms of all three categories. ;
