    My main criteria for art is, does it please my eye or ear; the only reason some people rave over daubs or tuneless noises is that they believe the rubbish trotted out by reviewers, critics and other similar pontificating parasites, why should we be guided by somebody else's opinion, can we not think for ourselves and say "I like (or don't like) that!

    I would suggest a change of title, - delete "good"

    Not sure if it crossed your mind, most of fart is made up of art. (in other words it's a loada cr@p)

    Well I think some art is approachable at least to me I do like the 'Impressionists' it projects the atmosphere without looking like a photograph

    13.5 million pounds is a bit steep.

    My theory is that like most things in Earth's cultures is that people often buy a name rather than the product. so the particular individual just paid X amount for the prestige of saying her/she owns a Picasso not as much as the painting itself is worth such. To support this I feel that if the if the art was good it would be more popular when he, Like many artists, was alive, not right after they pass away of in many instances take there own life. And Artist I like and I couldn't tell you why is Christiana Rosamond, she could sell anything before she drown in the pacific in 1994. and I own a $100 plus Print of her Blue Ice, Drawing. And death might be a tragedy that because of sympathy or something appreciates its value.

    As Dorsetmike said that if pleasing in some way or another in is art. and there is very little every last person would agree is good art.

    I have at last visited the acclaimed Turner Centre in Margate. A few of the lesser works by Turner are displayed but the rest is cr*p. I left felling that the views from the windows where the best bit. They even ruined the document gallery by NOT using non reflective glass thereby making it very hard to see the displays.

    Hi JHC, where are you?

    Classical demand used to go on the rarity of the work, that gives it is high value? Picasso paintings can sell for hundreds of millions, and indeed it is a moot point who fetches the most , Van Gough or Picasso.

    I don't know why that modern expressionist art fetches far more money than the classical masters, why? . The only explanation I have heard about this was a commentator who said that the state, or the deep state, can manipulate the market much in the way that it can issue fiat money. The theory is, that the state controlling the news media creates these false interest in things , which then takes on a life of their own and people begin to pay vast sums for what is really poor art. So the market is really being manipulated to create a false demand which then gets legs of its own so that billionaires are prepared to pay these vast sums for things that are way below the standard of classical art.
