Artistic representation of reality has always been figurative, that is in a relationship of analogy with reality, since artists have always thought that a relationship of analogy existed between the idea of reality and actual reality.
But in 1781 in Riga, Immanuel Kant (Könisberg 1724– 1804)
published a volume entitled “Critique of Pure Reason” where he
upheld – unlike
Plato who gave knowledge and all western art an objective and divine principle
- that reality in itself is incognizable and would only be thought of subjectively.
