  1. Social stratification in ethnographically-described cultures is positively associated with complexity of ceramic design and ceramic style (225)Peregrine, 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.

  3. Cultures with dwelling floor areas less than 80 meters-squared (indicator of patrilocality) are associated with more complex ceramic designs than cultures with dwelling floor areas more than 80 meters-squared (indicator of non-patrilocality) (227)Peregrine, Peter N. - Cultural correlates of ceramic styles, 2007 - 2 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. 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.

  6. "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.

  7. "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.

  8. "Figures without enclosures should characterize egalitarian societies; enclosed figures 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. No empirical cross-cultural hypotheses were tested in this paper.Blanton, Richard - Cultural transformation, art, and collective action in polity building, 2011 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the artistic encouragement of collective action during premodern regime building. No cross-cultural empirical hypotheses are tested, but the author identifies artistic processes that promoted the moral capacity for political commitment in a collective (rather than autocratic) polity.

    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.
