This paper deals with two questions. The first: are titles of artworks constitutive of what such works are? The second: are titles essential properties of artworks? The answer is given by the central thesis: the title slot for a work of art is never devoid of aesthetic potential; how it is filled, or that it is not filled, is always aesthetically relevant.


Titles; Artwork; Aesthetic properties; Ontology.
