The aesthetic categories “outline” and “contour” are of central importance in the history of literature on art. The problematic history of these categories furnishes insight into the evolution of aesthetic thinking in its continuities, fissures, and mechanisms of change. This study traces significant moments in the history of “outline” and “contour” from antiquity through the beginning of the 20th century.
