Excerpt from Elements of Art Criticism: Comprising a Treatise on the Principles of Man's Nature as Addressed by Art; Together With a Historic Survey of the Methods of Art Execution in the Departments of Drawing, Sculpture, Architecture, Painting, Landscaping Gardening, and the Decorative Arts
That the School and the College may supply this lack is manifest from the experience of other ages and nations. The age of Phidias and of Apelles, in ancient times, was the result of the matured growth of years of popular cul ture during which all the youth taught in the common schools of Greece were trained in both the theory and the practice of Plastic Art. The era of Lio nardo da Vinci, of Michel Angelo and of Raphael in Modern Italy, was devel oped under the inﬂuence of the theoretical study of Art by men of all ranks and classes in civil and ecclesiastical life; the principles of an intelligent criticism of Art being so universally familiar that even the common people were, as they now are, able to express an independent judgment upon master pieces of Sculpture and Painting. At the present day such is the system of University education in England and France, and even in Germany, that Art is taught chieﬂy in separate schools. The popular system of American educa tion, in which, after the primary training of the Common School, youth gen erally, both male and female, may aspire to an advanced course of scientific, literary and philosophic studies in Higher Schools and Colleges, seems to demand an elementary Text-book, kindred to those required in other depart ments of instruction. Such a Text-book, in order to meet the popular demand, must be at once comprehensive in its range, clear in its analysis and simple in its statements; while at the same time, in order to satisfy the necessities of more thorough students, it must add a more extended view of the principles of Art Criticism as recognized by philosophic writers, and of the methods of Art Execution as practiced by artists in different ages and nations.
