Gegenuber solchen allgemeinen AuBerungen gibt Sitte an anderer Stelle einen sehr detaillierten Einblick, worin fur ihn eine ideale Korperdarstellung besteht. 1891 erschien das Buch Schonheit und Fehler der mensch lichen Gestalt des Physiologen Ernst W. Brucke, einer zentralen Figur des Wiener Wissenschaftslebens. 72 Bruckes Werk war eine fur die damalige Zeit uberaus charakteristische Verbindung von Naturwissenschaft und Studien zur Kultur und Kunst. In seinem Buch uber die Korperdarstellung beschrieb er den Unterschied zwischen der Anatomie des menschlichen Korpers und dem klassischen Schonheitsideal.

Dazu gehorten die Vergntigungssucht des finanziell gesicherten Btirgertums, die Theatralisierung des Wiener Gesellschaftslebens, der Aufstieg der RingstraBen-Dandys und Kaffeehaus-Feuilletonisten, der Siegeszug von Walzer und Operette und eine geradezu orgiastische Fest- und Ballkultur. 40 So verwundert es nicht, daB Sitte gerade Makart angreift, jenen »Leitstern der Millionenstadt Wien«, der ahnlich wie Johann StrauB »hemmungslos dem Phaakentum« huldigte Oohnston) und als »Rattenfangergenie« bezeichnet wurde.

Das Alles ist Unsinn. «53 Diesen Widerspruch zwischen Stoff und Form in Feuerbachs Werk fuhrt Sitte auf die »widernaturliche Vermalung zwischen Idealismus und Naturalismus« zUrUck: 54 »Es gab und gibt noch im neunzehnten Jahrhundert Kunstler genug, denen nichts Anderes einfallt, als immer wieder Homer, die Bibel oder Dante zu illustriren, als ob dasjenige, was auf diesem Boden, zu leisten ist, Antike, Mittelalter und Renaissance nicht schon ohnehin geleistet hatten. «55 Trotz der Unvereinbarkeit dieser gegensatzlichen Elemente hatten Kunstler wie Feuerbach diese Verbindung angestrebt.
