Tell us something we don't know: why science can't show us much about art

Tell us something we don't know: why science can't show us much about art | Art & Science for Creative Geeks and Geeky Artists | Scoop.it
The scientific ‘discovery’ that Van Gogh’s art changed after his 1888 breakdown proves a forensic approach is no match for the subjective eye of an art lover
Grace W. Ho's insight:

hmmm...sometimes objective data does not bring conclusive clarity when it comes to studying art. However, let's also be clear that art lovers' interpretation of artists' choices (colors/elements, style, etc.) may -- at best -- point to "discovery" of truth when considered in historical context, beyond the simple subjective "truth" of gallery-goers who merely compare colors/strokes used in one Van Gogh versus another.
