Abstract
Gombrich’s “schema-correction” theory holds that tradition lends positive steering effects on development of art. While Norman Bryson a representative of the new art historians gives a completely new view in the art history on the tradition -- the anxiety of influence, which subverts the previous thought about positive effects of tradition from the predecessor to the later generations by focusing on the actual human psychology and questioning the positive effects of tradition. This paper intends to point out the uniqueness of his “schema-corrections” theory by interpreting Bryson’s view on tradition in art history, so as to provide a new perspective and idea for research on art history.
