Gurus say who is good, and the appreciation and the so-called quality related to the price. The proximity of artworks to share is that the buyer completes a bet on the future success and on the profitability of a plant. A work of art must arise out of inner necessity, not only the eye, but speak also soul and mind and enrich humanity with its vision”, the Milanese gallerist Arturo Schwarz thinks (” quoted in “HYPE”, Piroschka Dossi, dtv Munich, 2007). I am reluctant with the idea of the enrichment of humanity through a vision. Often visionary powers, such as when a shaman are associated with the artist. Consistent with the contradictory denial of money in the art scene, puts the art in the vicinity of the religion. The religious claims of art is reflected in the vague language of the art exegetes. “A taste: so the press release to a current museum exhibition, the artwork gives an idea of presence and spirituality, which exceeds the superficial actuality of the object.” All right? To adequately assess art, exact knowledge of art history and contemporary art is useful to establish similarities and connection lines.
A work of art is never isolated in history. Sometimes, the proximity of artistic masterpieces to other ideas is very striking. Who knows that Jackson Pollock’s famous drip paintings Max Ernst are based on an idea of his artist friend? Or that Frank Stellas space-filling installations represent an enlargement of the art of the Russian Avantgardistin Ljubov Popova? Who brings Neo Rauch images with the reverse stared works by Balthus and the supercooled realism of the 1920s in conjunction? No art without art judgment! It has become more difficult to locate that information, which enable a judgment. Quality assessment requires knowledge of artistic strategies and objectives. Today, you can only subjective approach of the art, but involve also the historiography of art.
