So, y'all may remember me rambling about the elements and principles of artistic design reflecting Plato's conception of forms. The link at the bottom of this post is to the official list of elements and principles. Notice how each item, especially the elements, match up to Plato's imagining of forms? Roughness, purple-ness, shading existing separate from the objects they might be applied to? Do y'all think the same argument applies to the principles?
