Stil In Berlin
In Oscar Wilde's aesthetics the central concept defining the sphere of art is style. When artists produce their work they are not concerned with addressing themselves to moral issues, but are merely concerned with the style of artistic production. Artists do not set out to produce works that have a morally prescriptive dimension because their concern is the presentation of ideas. In Wilde's view of art, the manner in which an idea is presented is of greater significance than any underlying 'message' or moral content. Style for Wilde was a mannerism adopted by the artist for the purpose of conveying an interesting idea.
