The Manner of Art: an Aesthetic Influence on Evaluation
This research investigates the influence of visual art on consumer evaluations of brands associated with the artworks. The authors propose that the process underlying this influence is linked to an “art-is-special” heuristic, which: 1) is evoked when consumers focus on the manner rather than the content of the artwork; 2) operates regardless of contextual fit between the artwork and the associated product; 3) does not require extensive cognitive resources to operate; 4) is diminished in its influence when the use of artworks is rendered commonplace (ordinization).
