In analyzing reproduction in art we could see how important a place among reproducing works is held by works reproducing man and how the emotional attitude to the persons represented is often a prime factor in the experiences of the spectator or reader. The attitude to man appears in aesthetic experiences in still another form ; in contemplating works of art the thought about the author of the work also intervenes very often. Here too, this relation takes on, at times, an emotional colouring, for example, when the work gives rise to admiration for the creator’s talent. Finally, in various cases the object directly perceived, which evokes our aesthetic attitudes, is a living man, either in some of the arts (drama, ballet) or in ordinary communing with people.
