I've recently read THE SHAPE OF CONTENT by Ben Shahn. He talks about Spiritual Energy as being the primary force in art. He also mentions non-conformity as a basic pre-condition of art. He claims that the degree of non-conformity present and tolerated in a society might be looked upon as a symptom of its state of health.
