Innovation In Artworks And Its Reception: A Phenomenological Approach
This paper seeks to explain the reception of a novel idea in artworks from a phenomenological perspective, with special reference to creativity in oil painting. It argues that whether a new idea in artwork is accepted or not by the community is a matter of subjective interpretation. Based on human agency theories put forwarded by Max Weber and Alfred Schutz, this paper uses the concept of intersubjective understanding to explain how innovative works are interpreted and accepted by the community. The phenomenological approach to understand an artwork is illustrated by oil paintings of Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.
