Writing Prompt: Art Appreciation

Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their Art? To spend money on it?

If I appreciated an artist’s work based on his/her lifestyle or politics it will not say much about my appreciation. If we did that with anyone,the world would be a very difficult place to live in.

Art appreciation should be based on the talent or the gift of the artist,it should have nothing to with his political affiliation, think about all the well-known artist,do we say oh let’s find out what kind of a lifestyle he had then we’ll decide whether his work is worthy to be bought. 

I will spend money on an art work I like, the life style or politics will make no difference.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this interesting post.

    My daughter is an artist. Really, I think, we’re all artists.

    I prefer art which elevates what is highest in people. Art which points to a new zenith is capable of transforming the world.

    All good wishes,

    robert
