Triumph of the Will, Formalist, dangers of beautiful evil (525)
The Formalist Method of art critique centres on evaluating a given art work in aesthetic terms alone. This approach was made popular in the early 18th century by Edward Bullough. The idea is to look at each work in relation to its ‘craft’ alone, rather than evaluate its message. If we are looking at a painting we could look at the use of colour, brush technique, use of space/dimension etc.
