Malraux, l'art et le temps: Un defi a l'esthetique traditionnelle (Malraux, art and time: A challenge to traditional aesthetics)

Allan, Derek


One of the most remarkable contributions that André Malraux made to the theory of art is his explanation of the relationship between art and time: his argument that art transcends time through a process of metamorphosis. This proposition, which replaces the traditional belief that art resists time because it is eternal or immortal, poses a major challenge to traditional aesthetics. This article examines the notion of metamorphosis and the challenge it represents.
