Triad "Historicism, stylization, eclecticism" and postmodernism in the history and theory of art

Abstract. The article examines the notions of historicism, stylization and eclecticism on several examples from the history of studying architectonic and visual arts. The frequency of these phenomens of artistic thinking in different epochs is noted. According to the author of the article, not binary, but triadno-harmonious relations of notions more fully reflect the collisions of the historical development of culture. The author proposes to call the modern era postmillenism. The approach outlined in the article will allow to present the named terms in the form of a kind of qualification typology. Such a typology is preliminary, but it can be used as one of the methodical tools of art history researches.

Keywords. Art studies, historicism,classification, classicism, postmillenism, style, stylization, triadic relations, modern, postmodernism, eclectics
