First Cluster

Narrative Informality and Compensatory Longings
Part of the The Plenum Series in Adult Development and Aging book series (SSAD)


The first cluster is exemplified by broad shapes and very little emphasis on form or composition; there is a certain up-beat mood to them, but very little idiosyncrasy or originality. So we may interpret the factor scores, which are, in descending order, “expansiveness”, “informality”, and “timidity” (see Table 3 in the Appendix). To a greater degree than any other cluster they also tell a story, and tell it broad strokes, as it were; none of the artists worked on their image under magnification. We may say that stylistically what they have is a certain narrative informality.1
