In contrast to enjoying, understanding painting is not by involving psychological (emotional) elements. If enjoying a person can feel melted, absorbed and even drift psychologically when looking at paintings, then on understanding, a person must be in a state of conscious (self). There must be a distance between himself as the observer and the painting as the observed object. As Edward Bullough (1800-1934) says, one must break free of all the influences when it comes to understanding a work of art, since emotional involvement will cause his judgment to be merely the justification of a personal slant. Therefore the explanation likes a painting because it is interested in the choice of the object, or being touched to see it, for example, is not an expression of understanding.
