CHIZHEVSKY PENDULUM, OR HOW HISTORY KILLS GENIUSES. ADDITIONS TO THE THEORY OF PROGRESSIVE CYCLIC DEVELOPMENTOF ART BY F.I. SHMIT


The article reviews the original concept of general history of art proposed by the Russian scholar Fedor Ivanovich Shmit (1877–1937). In spite of skepticism expressed by various researchers towards the idea of cyclicity, this theory keeps occupying a considerable place in national art studies. The author adds to it with dates of crises, failures and deaths in the life of prominent artists. These tragic events combine into a picture which is no less important than that of the birth of works of genius and is a substantial contribution to the concept of progressive cyclic development of art.

Key words: a-rhythmology, history of art, cluster analysis, synchronous approach, Fedor Ivanovich Shmit (1877–1937)
