Thoughts about “Old-Age Style,”
and other thoughts about “Late Style”
As adapted in 2010 from a paper originally presented
at the 2007 American Psychological Association conference in San Francisco

Style and Content in the work of Titian, Kollwitz and Martin
in youth, maturity and old age,
using research and concepts from Martin Lindauer and Edward Said.

Titian, The Flagellation

Kollwitz, Death Calls

Martin, #1, May

Among the late works, are these examples of Lindauer's old-age style as 
“thick, freely executed; bold, rough, spontaneous”
or are they examples of Said's
“In the history of art, the late works are the catastrophes,”

or are they both?
