Summary/Abstract: This text researches Riegl’s and Dvořák’s concepts of artistic will and spirit of art as theoretical foundations for structural transformation in the history of art. The focus is on the common points as well as the differences; the article develops the thesis that, while Riegl still adheres to strict normativity in the theory of art, Dvořák manages to adapt his theory to the on-going processes in modern art, and particularly to expressionism.
