Question by Critical_rationalist: What makes someone an art “expert” to determine the quality and meaningfulness of a work of art?
Isn’t all art and beauty in the eye of the beholder? If I think Magritte, Dix, Van Gogh, Monet, and Raphael are great and Harring, Pollock, and Warhol are totally over-rated, how is my opinion worth any less than someone who has taken lots of art appreciating and art history classes?
\
Who gets to determine what is great and important art and what isn’t?

Answer by Caleb
Your opinion isn’t worth less than theirs, however they are looking at art in a more complete mold (sometimes). They have been educated to see art as an entire lump and then to see the different periods that art went through.
That being said I agree with your easements of those artists. Sometimes people get caught up in trendy!
