Traditionally, the history of art show technics development towards the imitation of nature. But in certain point we always go back to the primitive, looking for references and inspiration. This show that despite all development and opinions, we have in our unconscious a certain preference for the primitive.
Why the primitive and unpolished art? Because our brain works by association and metaphor. When art becomes too polished and explicit, towards the reality copy, or attention goes to the artist skills and effects that appeal to the material tangibility. While the rough unpolished art plays with our neurological instincts of association and metaphors, leading the observer to use his imagination and feelings.
The hard traces from tribal, pre-historical, greek vases and even medieval art as well as expressionism and cubism, for exmple, are associated with nobility, strenght, innocence and sincerity. And the "soft" traces that art have being developed and redeveloped towards the imitation of nature was identified with vulgarity, effeminance, corruption and meretriciousness.
"...the earlier phases of art can never be superseded by later ones, because they represent forms of expression which remain valid to later ages."
"The more the artist know how to flatter the senses, the more he will mobilize defences against this flattery"
"The very progress of his skill (the artist skill) will lead to a longing for the appearance of less skill and more honesty."
