Art rose from humble beginnings to the summit of perfection’ because such natural geniuses as Giotto blazed the trail and others were thus enabled to build on their achievements. Thus we read of the mysterious Stefano: ‘Although the foreshortenings which he made are faulty in manner . . ’ Vasari, in other words, saw the invention of the means of representation as a great collective enterprise of such difficulty that a certain division of labour was inevitable. Thus he says of Taddeo Gaddi: ‘Taddeo always adopted Giotto’s manner but did not greatly improve it except in the colouring, which he made fresher and more vivid.

Riegl seized on this interpretation as the basis for an even bolder generalization. In 1901 he defined his position toward Hildebrand’s much-discussed theories: The historian could accept Hildebrand’s psychological analysis; he could not share his artistic bias. Reliance on touch was neither better nor worse than reliance on vision; each was justified in its own right and in its own period. Having been commissioned to publish archaeological finds from the period of declining antiquity, Riegl wrote his famous book Spätrömische Kunstindustrie (‘Late Roman Arts and Crafts’), which represents the most ambitious attempt ever made to interpret the whole course of art history in terms of changing modes of perception.

In other words, instead of playing ‘rabbit or duck’ they had to invent the game of ‘canvas or nature’, played with a configuration of coloured earth which—at a distance at least—might result in illusion. Artistic or not, this is a game which could emerge only as a result of Countless trials and errors. As a secular experiment in the theory of perception, illusionist art perhaps deserves attention even in a period which has discarded it for other modes of expression. At the risk of giving away my plot, I will confess to the hurried reader or critic that these conclusions, here anticipated, will only be presented in full in the ninth chapter of this book, where some of the problems discussed in this introduction will be taken up again.
