Imperial phase

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The imperial phase is the period in which an artist is regarded to be at their commercial and creative peak simultaneously.[1] Critic Tom Ewing described three criteria for defining an artist's imperial phase: "command, permission, and self-definition". He defined "command" as an artist's ability to push the boundaries of their medium in a way that produces lasting change. "Permission" is the public's goodwill toward and interest in the artist's work. Finally, "self-definition" is the concept that the imperial phase defines the rest of the artist's career; future works will be compared to those from the imperial phase.[1]

The phrase was coined by Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys to describe the period between the release of their album Please in 1986 to the release of the single Domino Dancing in late 1988.[2]
