What has gone virtually unnoticed in the literature on s art, however, is that minimal art for Wollheim designates the point where painting the medium to which Wollheim has devoted attention , regardless of its historical or stylistic affiliations, is almost not an art. The idea that a correspondence of material form and meaning is essential to artistic representation, ostensibly challenged by the putative minimality of s art, has long engaged Wollheim. This is the central problem in his philosophical aesthetics. This broadening constituted the ground zero not only of art making, but also of its viewing and interpretation. In the second of these, Wollheim responds to the ideas set forth in the other essays.

Art and its Objects

The philosopher Richard Wollheim, who has died aged 80, belonged in the top echelon of thinkers who redefined the practice of his subject in Britain and the United States after the second world war. In terms both of the clarity of his writing and the acuity and ingenuity of his arguments, he embodied the intellectual virtues of analytical philosophy. But in terms of what engaged him as a philosopher, he stood far closer than any of his peers to continental thought. Wollheim had little interest in donnish preoccupations with linguistic usage, or with the endlessly agonising issues of how language relates to reality. But he freely adapted some of the strategies worked out in addressing these issues to the problems that did engross him, which typically derived less from what other philosophers said than from what was central in his life. As a philosopher, he was, for example, deeply engaged with issues that were central to the visual arts.
