Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
While many accepted Winckelmann's theories of art production and many of his characteristic critical epithets, Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe remained obsessed with visual arts, which is central to Winckelmann's aesthetic. This chapter focuses on the essential contribution of Goethe to the business of aesthetic reception. It examines Goethe's scholarly approach and responses to art and compares his reception to art with that observed in Winckelmann.
