Apprendre à dessiner deux théories

Alessandro Pignocchi

pp. 47-59

The practice of drawing is an ideal study case for framing a cognitive approach to art. In this paper I enumerate six constraints that must be respected by any cognitive theory of drawing production. I evaluate the two major existing theories – Ruskin’s theory of the innocent eye and Gombrich’ theory of graphic schemes – and show the superiority of Gombrich’ theory. I finally provide the first elements for a psychological development of the theory of graphic schemes.
