Pictures, styles and purposes

British Journal of Aesthetics 32 (4):330-341 (1992)
Abstract
Pictures belong to stylistic systems that vary historically and culturally. This variation suggests that styles are conventional. However, styles are not conventional. Styles have perceptual functions that make them apt for use in some contexts and not others.
