Preguntas 5–7

A serious critic has to comprehend the particular content, unique structure, and special meaning of a work of art, and here is the dilemma. The critic must recognize the artistic element of uniqueness that requires subjective reaction and yet must not be unduly prejudiced by such reactions. Likes and dislikes are less important than what the work of art communicates, and preferences may actually prevent an adequate understanding of it. Hence, it is necessary that a critic develop a sensibility informed by familiarity with the history of art and aesthetic theory. On the other hand, it is insufficient to consider the work of art from a historical perspective, in relationship to a fixed set of values. The critic’s knowledge and training are a preparation of the cognitive and emotional abilities needed for an adequate response to a work’s own particular qualities.

  1. According to the passage, in which way does a serious art critic avoid being prejudiced by personal reactions?

    • (A) By allowing more time for the observation of the work of art
    • (B) By reacting to a work of art according to a fixed set of values
    • (C) By applying knowledge of art history and aesthetic theory
    • (D) By considering the preferences of other art critics


  2. What does the author imply is a disadvantage of evaluating a work of art only from a historical perspective?

    • (A) Such an approach can insulate critics from personally held beliefs.
    • (B) The historical period of many works of art cannot accurately be determined.
    • (C) Some critics are not sufficiently familiar with art history.
    • (D) Such an approach could prevent critics from appreciating specific qualities of the
      work of art.


  3. The passage suggests that the author would most likely agree with which of the following statements?

    • (A) The best art is accessible to the greatest number of people.
    • (B) Art appeals to the passions as well as to the intellect.
    • (C) The meaning of art varies according to where it is produced.
    • (D) Most works of art express unconscious desire.
