(p.148) 9. Duration and Rhetorical Movement
Bergson and the Art of Immanence

James Day

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter examines the relations between the time of writing and art historical time by linking Bergsonian duration with rhetorical devices from the postmodern historical novel, in particular Carlos Fuentes’ Terra Nostra. Fuentes’ work provides modes of writing for art historians to describe heterotopic relations such as between Whistler’s Symphony in White, No. I. and Manet’s Luncheon on the Grass. Given that the times present in these paintings are unstable, writing can alter them and render their histories constantly and creatively evolving

Keywords:   Bergson, Fuentes, Whistler, Manet, rhetoric, art history
