Arthur Clive Heward Bell was an English Art critic, associated with the Bloomsbury group. Bell was one of the founders of the formalist theory of art. In this book he claims that representation and emotion in themselves do not contribute to the aesthetic experience of a painting. Instead it is the significant form within the painting which determines its artistic content. He defines Significant Form for painting as "relations and combinations of lines and colours" and considered it to be common to all works of visual art.
