The interaction between cognitive and emotional processing in aesthetic appreciation becomes an important issue in the areas of neuroaesthetics and empirical aethethetics recently. To address this issue, the present study investigated how the viewing time and cognitive involvement affect aesthetic preference and emotion in art appreciation using western and Chinese paintings as materials. Viewing time was set to be 100 ms or 20 sec. The degree of cognitive involvement was manipulated by a concurrent interference task. Both explicit and implicit indexes were measured for aesthetic preference and emotion, respectively. The results showed that aesthetic preference was increased for long viewing time when viewing Chinese paintings. In addition, this effect depends on high cognitive involvement. In contrast, long viewing time has an adaptation effect on preference for western paintings. Besides, cognitive involvement did not show obvious influences. With respect to the aesthetic emotion, various results of the effects of viewing time and cognitive involvement were found for western and Chinese paintings and for different emotions. Overall, the aesthetic appreciation processes of the western and Chinese paintings were found to be different in some respects. The importance of cognitive involvement in aesthetic appreciation was partly supported. But there was no conclusive evidence about the interaction between cognitive and emotional processing in aesthetic appreciation.
