Text Book Response 1(Preface, Chapter8,9)
The name of book is Mirror of The World. It`s a little strange for a book
about art. Why did the author use “world” in a title of a book totally about
art? It was answered by the author in the preface. It says that the author sees
art history as a frame within which world history, in all its breadth, is
continually reflected back at us, rather than as a window which opens onto some
independent aesthetic realm. The author thought the art changes somehow relate
to the change of the society, technology, politics and religions. Besides,
Julian Bell believed the works of art could reveal realities that had otherwise
lain unseen , that they could act as frames for the truth, which could bring
him closer to some artists.
That`s why he called the art history a mirror while I do think that he believes
it is more than a mirror.
In the preface, Julian Bell also did some introductions about what he want to
show the readers and how, and the differences between this book and other
“usual” art history books. For example, Julian Bell tried to show us some art
works in depth by narrowing the range of the book instead of giving readers a
wide face without digging. Because Julian believes art history is kind of
rather personal thoughts. He wanted to show readers what he was thinking about
when he got through these paintings and stories behind them rather than telling
us about focus about the painting as usual historians did. He try not to make
readers confuse. If something he was not sure about, he just kept quiet. I
think it’s good. It makes us keep thinking because some were mQentioned and
some other interesting things were not talking about by the author. It’s a
smart way to write. When I was reading. I can feel that Julian Bell was not
only trying to lead us to some correct path, but trying not to give us
misunderstanding as well.
