Abstract

By looking at the meaning of artistic creation for Mary Shelley, William Blake and Henry Fuseli, this research argues that, through their works of art, the three artists endeavor to establish a new modern aesthetic, in order to distinguish themselves from what has already been done and propose truly original artworks that would allow them to make a place for themselves amongst the greatest artists. The several chapters of the study – focusing on unity versus diversity, beauty versus ugliness and delight versus horror – manifest that this new aesthetic is constructed around a variety of notions such as assemblage, borrowing, diversity, composite beauty, as well as fear and horror.
