Aesthetic Communication of Art: Reflections from Taine’s Philosophy of Art

Lyuqi He


The book Philosophy of Art is the result of Taine’s grasping and sorting out the essence of art, showing the integration
of aesthetic theory and art, and containing the inspiration and significance of art aesthetics to later scholars. This article combines
Taine’s insights and lecture notes on art in the book, discusses the value of art’s aesthetics as a work of art, and explores the origin
and true meaning of art from the perspective of the artist’s accomplishments and the factors that determine art.
