Abstract

Does formal art training educate the eye by enabling the viewer to carry out the type of in-depth analysis of the composition elements called for in Berlyne’s theory? Do differences in visual exploration contribute to aesthetic judgment? To answer these questions, the present study compares visual exploration patterns of art-trained and untrained viewers who judged compositions that differed in balance through manipulation of symmetrical organization.
