Abstract

The nature of art talent has been a problem of considerable research in the last decade. A careful survey was made of all available data in regard to selecting tests which were best adapted for the appraisal of certain capacities and abilities that function in the various artistic performances and 18 tests were selected. These were given to 27 subjects divided into three groups: a superior artistic group, an average group of art students with very little training, and a group of non-art people. Each subject reported individually for the tests and the amount of time required from each was from 12 to 16 hours. Correlations were made between the various tests and the ability and capacity of each group was compared with that of the others.
