10 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY This study investigated 1.the structure of aesthetic experience 2.the relationship of this structure and other dimensions of the subjective judgements of paintings.

11 REGULARITY regular arranged precise AROUSAL impressive strong interesting HEDONIC TONE pleasant beautiful healthy RELAXATION calming warm serene SUBJECTIVE JUDGEMENTS OF PAINTINGS Marković, S. & Radonjić, A. (2008). Implicit and explicit features of paintings. Spatial Vision, 21 (3-5),

12 Descriptors of aesthetic experience EXPERIMENT FASCINATING IRRESISTIBLE UNIQUE ETERNAL PROFOUND EXCEPTIONAL UNIVERSAL UNSPEAKABLE I would like to have this painting

13 METHOD Subjects: 26 students of Dept. of Psychology, Univ. of Belgrade Stimuli: 24 paintings used in previous study (Marković & Radonjić, 2008) Procedure: Paintings were judged on 9 unipolar scales (1-7) FASCINATING IRRESISTIBLE UNIQUE ETERNAL PROFOUND EXCEPTIONAL UNIVERSAL UNSPEAKABLE I would like to have this painting

14 AncientFigural AbstractStylized

15 RESULTS Principle component analysis String out matrix (Osgood, May & Miron, 1975)

16 RESULTS Principle component analysis Principle component (60,88%) 1.EXCEPTIONAL FASCINATING IRRESISTIBLE I would like to have this painting ETERNAL PROFOUND UNIQUE UNSPEAKABLE UNIVERSAL.632

17 AE: Average judgments on 9 scales (exceptional, fascinating, irresistible …) Predictors: Four dimensions of subjective judgments RESULTS Regression analysis REGULARITY regular arranged precise AROUSAL impressive strong interesting HEDONIC TONE pleasant beautiful healthy RELAXATION calming warm serene

18 Multiple regression coefficient: r 2 = 391 not significant Partial contributions: RESULTS Regression analysis HEDONIC TONE AROUSAL REGULARITY RELAXATION

19 Multiple regression coefficient: r 2 = 391 not significant Partial contributions: r 2 =.227, p <.05 RESULTS Regression analysis  t p HEDONIC TONE AROUSAL REGULARITY RELAXATION

20 AROUSAL impressive strong interesting HEDONIC TONE pleasant beautiful healthy AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE exceptional fascinating irresistible RESULTS

21 CONCLUSIONS 1.The aesthetic experience is a unique and relatively independent phenomenon: a)Internally, it is not dividable into components b)Externally, it is weakly correlated with the other subjective dimensions of paintings perception. 2.The aesthetic experience is closer to the Arousal, than to the Hedonic tone and the other subjective dimensions of paintings
