CHAPTER XI. DIFFERENCES IN THE SAME ART AS REPRESENTING DIFFERENT DEGREES OF CONSCIOUS OR SUBCONSCIOUS MENTAL ACTION.

The Balance between Influence upon the Conscious and Subconscious Mind -- Religious, Scientific, and Artistic Conceptions -- Expressed in Idealism, Realism, and Idealised Realism -- In the Good, True, and Beautiful; the Sublime, Picturesque, and Brilliant; the Grand, Simple, and Striking -- The Sublime -- Illustrations -- The Picturesque -- The Brilliant -- Distinction between the Beautiful and the Brilliant -- The Grand as Allied to the Horrible -- The Simple to the Pathetic -- The Striking to the Violent -- True in All the Arts -- The Epic -- The Realistic -- The Dramatic -- Aim of Epic-Recital -- Of Realistic -- Of Dramatic -- Epic Art-Products -- Realistic -- Historic -- The Historic Distinguished from the Dramatic -- Dramatic Poetry: Lyrics -- Dramatic Character-Painting -- Genre Painting -- Dramatic Painting Proper -- Historic Distinguished from Dramatic Sculpture -- Practical Object of These Distinctions.

WE have found that the peculiarities of the conceptions respectively represented in each of the arts are attributable to the different degrees in which the mind is influenced from within or from without. There are also different degrees in which the mind, whether influenced from within or from without, is stimulated to exercise what, in Chapter III., were termed its conscious or its subconscious powers. In this chapter it is to be shown that, in each art, there are certain subdivisions determined by the relative influence exerted upon conception from the one or the other of these sources.
