  1. Social stratification in archaeologically-described societies is positively associated with ceramic design complexity and ceramic style complexityPeregrine, Peter N. - Cultural correlates of ceramic styles, 2007 - 3 Variables

    This study replicates John L. Fischer's (1961) cross-cultural analysis to demonstrate the correlation between art styles and social hierarchy and postmarital residence. The author suggests that archaeological ceramics might be used to predict social characteristics of prehistoric societies.

  5. ". . . there would be more curved [and complex] designs in polygynous societies and more straight-line designs in monogamous societies" (86)Fischer, J. L. - Art styles as cultural cognitive maps, 1961 - 3 Variables

    This paper tests theory suggesting that art is a form of expressive cultures which ultimately is shaped by the social conditions under which people in a society live. Focuses on social hierarchy and its relationship to art styles.

  6. ". . . that an abstract preference for curvilinearity or rectilinearity may be manifested both in dwelling shape and in decorative art" (128)Whiting, John W.M. - Inferences from the shape of dwellings, 1968 - 3 Variables

    This study examines several correlates of the shape of floor plans of dwellings. Authors find that "whether a culture is settled or nomadic, the form of its family and the presence or absence of status distinctions are related to its house type, and the house types can in turn be inferred from the floor plan." Curvilinear houses are associated with polygyny and nomadism and rectilinear houses are associated with sedentarism, extended families, and status distinctions.

  7. Social stratification will be associated with crowded space (428).Dressler, William W. - Art styles, social stratification, and cognition: an analysis of greek vase ..., 1975 - 2 Variables

    This study tests Fischer's (1961) cross-cultural hypotheses about the association between social structure and styles of art using formal design elements on painted vases in ancient Greece. Results show support for all of Fischer's hypotheses.

  8. "Design repetitive of a number of rather simple elements should characterize egalitarian societies; design integrating a number of unlike elements should . . . characterize hierarchical societies" (81)Fischer, J. L. - Art styles as cultural cognitive maps, 1961 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests theory suggesting that art is a form of expressive cultures which ultimately is shaped by the social conditions under which people in a society live. Focuses on social hierarchy and its relationship to art styles.

  9. "Symmetrical design (a special case of repetition) should characterize egalitarian societies; asymmetrical design should characterize hierarchical societies" (81)Fischer, J. L. - Art styles as cultural cognitive maps, 1961 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests theory suggesting that art is a form of expressive cultures which ultimately is shaped by the social conditions under which people in a society live. Focuses on social hierarchy and its relationship to art styles.
