By no means a period piece, it is a brilliant and systematic interaction that touches some of the most crucial features of the Western tradition. This is the first in a series of books in which one of the most influential of contemporary art theorists revised from within the conceptions underlying the history of art.
Or it could be the vaporous swathes that Correggio uses to mediate between the viewer on earth and the heavenly prospect in his frescoed domes at Parma.
A Theory of /Cloud Toward a History of Painting
Insofar as the cloud is a semiotic operator, interacting with the linear order of perspective, it also becomes a dynamic agent facilitating the creation of new types of pictorial space. Damisch puts the signifer cloud between slashes to indicate that he deals with clouds as signs instead of realistic elements.
This way of looking at the history of painting is especially fruitful for the Renaissance and Baroque periods, but it is also valuable for looking at such junctures as the nineteenth century. For example, Damisch invokes Ruskin and Turner, who carry out both in theory and in practice a revision of the conditions of appearances of the cloud as a landscape feature.
Even for the twentieth century, he has illuminating things to say about how his reading of cloud applies to the painters Leger and Batthus. In short, Damisch achieves a brilliant and systematic demonstration of a concept of semiotic interaction that touches some of the most crucial features of the Western art tradition.
