 Clive Bell says one of the major characteristics of Post-Impressionism is that the artist no longer cares “about representation . . . [but] minds about creating significant form.” Roger Fry also celebrated the intensive colors and radical forms of Post-Impressionists that are entirely cut off from conventional standards of beauty. These critics` interests in the Post-Impressionists` depersonalized or disinterested art form cut off from conventional beauty or natural reaction to reality further developed into the famous slogan “art for art`s sake,” the art form that is “self-contained.” In this paper, I first summarize Bell`s and Fry`s definitions of “significant form” and “art for art`s sake,” and afterwards explore how Virginia Woolf was influenced by their formalist aesthetic but at the same time distanced herself from the notion of an intact and unchangeable nature of people and objects. My response in this paper highlights Woolf`s first novel, The Voyage Out.
