Pictures and Tears by James Elkins

By James Elkins

«Картины и слезы» - необычное исследование картин и эмоций, которые они вызывают. В прошлом зрители часто приходили в сильное волнение от картин. Греческие живописцы IV в. до н.э. изображали людей в состоянии глубокой печали, чтобы зритель мог бы сопереживать им. Крик перед картинами был обычным делом в средневековье. Большое количество слез было пролито перед картинами в восемнадцатом столетии, а затем вновь в эпоху романтизма. Почему же последние сто лет был настолько «сухи» по сравнению с ними?
Автор описывает свою встречу с «Экстазом Св. Франциска» Беллини в Собрании Фрика, анализирует эффект, производимый на посетителей часовни Rothko Chapel, разбирает отзывы зрителей о картинах Караваджо, Грёза, Фридриха, Энгра и др. Сотни отзывов людей, разделивших с автором состояние крайней взволнованности перед картинами, становятся объектом исследования об эмоциональной уязвимости и природе искусства.
