This concern with using types of sculpture to evoke a set of feelings within an environment, a concern which Marvin ascribes to other Roman villa builders, assimilates the work of art to a decorative fixture; the viewer’s engagement with these works is surely closer to the “distraction” supposedly characteristic of the modern urban masses in an age of mass reproducibility than the contemplative immersion or religious awe that the essay claims to have been the prevailing attitude prior to modernity. The defender of the essay could point to the passage where Benjamin writes about distraction and note that the essay specifically exempts architecture from the historical schema. Since “primeval times,” the essay argues, we have used rather than contemplated architecture and our attitude has therefore always tended to be one of “distraction.” If the statuary of Cicero’s villa at Tusculum is properly regarded as part of an architectural ensemble rather than as a set of individual works of art, then the anachronism of attitude is only apparent, not real, and the essay’s larger historical schema still stands. For this defense to work, however, the essay’s defender must posit a way of distinguishing the auratic from the non auratic in the case of works of art produced prior to modernity.
