In their contribution, Alessandro Bertinetto and Marcello Ruta argue that, even considering the most radical forms of improvised painting (such as Pollock’s Action Painting, or its quasi-ancestor Cozens’s blotting), key differences remain between improvisational painting and improvisation in performing arts. In particular, viewers do not need to become acquainted with the improvisational process (the pictorial performance) in order to aesthetically experience the produced painting. Still, as the chapter shows through paradigmatic examples, the aesthetic import of improvisation in painting can be articulated in a series of aesthetic properties.
