Principles for Interpreting Art
Dog·mat·ic- adj. inclined to lay down principles as incontrovertibly true.
Interpreting- telling what you think it means
Judging- telling how good you think it is
theorizing- telling what counts as art
Analyzing- telling formal characteristics about the art
Coherence-does it make sense in itself and apart from the work?
Correspondence- does it interpretation match with what is being seen?
Inclusiveness-does it account for what is in the work and the environment that the work is in?
