Arnold Hauser (art historian)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arnold Hauser (8 May 1892 in Timioara, Temes County 28 January 1978 in Budapest) was a Hungarian art
historian who was perhaps the leading Marxist in the field. He wrote on the influence of change in social
structures on art. His The Social History of Art (1951) argued that artwhich, after a paleolithic period of
naturalism, began as "flat, symbolic, formalized, abstract and concerned with spiritual beings"became more
realistic and naturalistic as societies became less hierarchical and authoritarian, and more mercantile and
bourgeois (Harrington).
