This chapter considers the view that the survival of a work of art is determined by its aesthetic properties, and compares this with the view that the survival of a work of art is determined by its compositional origins. It argues that both theories have virtues and vices, and that the virtues of one theory are the vices of the other; this points us towards the kind of view we need.

Keywords:   art survival, aesthetic properties, compositional origins
