British Journal of Aesthetics 16 (4):305-312 (1976)
Three strategic claims are explored sympathetically: (i) aesthetic appreciation centers on what is directly discriminable but it cannot, Relative to art, Be restricted to what is thus discriminable; (ii) a work of art may be aesthetically appreciated for properties that it cannot actually be shown to have; (iii) forgeries may, "qua" forgeries, Exhibit aesthetically valuable properties, Including directly discriminable properties. These issues are pursued critically in the context of the views of goodman, Rudner, Iseminger, Dickie, Lyas, And danto--And of specimen cases drawn from the various arts
