    Thornton, Alfred

    Alfred Henry Robinson Thornton 1863-1939
    Contributor to The Burlington Magazine since 1920.
    Alfred Thornton was active as a painter of landscapes and writer. He studied Fine Arts at the Slade School of Fine Art and Westminster School of Art. In 1890 Thornton went to Le Pouldu in Brittany (where Paul Gauguin was then at work) to paint. In 1893 he became teaching assistant to Walter Sickert. Thornton was a contributor to the Yellow Book, founded in 1894. He became a member of the New English Art Club in 1895 and Honorary Secretary from 1928 until his death. In 1924 Thornton joined the rivalling London Group. Later in his life, in 1938, Thornton published autobiographical notes, The Diary of an Art Student of the Nineties. After his death in 1939, a memorial exhibition was held in the Redfern Gallery, London.
    A major issue in Thornton's contributions to The Burlington Magazine is his attempt to relate psychological theories to aesthetics. Thornton had a keen interest in the underlying motives that produce art: he studied the cultural factors that motivate artists to revert to certain styles in different periods. Thornton was inspired by Sigmund Freud's theories of the subconscious mind and by the philosopher Clive Bell, most significantly by Bell's concept of 'aesthetic emotion', an emotional response evoked purely by aesthetic qualities of an art work.
    It is only consistent that Thornton's first three articles about art and the mind in The Burlington Magazine were written in collaboration with the psychologist Ronald Gordon. In their articles, Thornton and Gordon tried to establish what they regarded as objective art criticism by classifying of artists into 'introvert' and 'extrovert' types, singling out Cézanne as a medium between the 'extrovert' nineteenth and the 'introversion' of the twentieth century. Thornton writes in his Diary that their ideas were received partly with controversy by artists and scholars. 
    Thornton has been described as a man of wide culture and alert intellect. He was open for new ideas and quick in taking them up. His creation of formalist analogies was an innovative approach at his time, although it disregards chronological considerations. Thornton's comprehensive contributions to the study of art were among those that prepared the way for interdisciplinary art history of the twentieth century.
