The artist is the creator of all beautiful things.
When art becomes a commodity so does the artist. Does it then become high art in the consumer/commodity world? The artist becomes a product of capitalism, creating art that really has no significance but only relatable to the people who have no artistic historical knowledge. The art becomes a piece of art that goes well with the rest of furniture items in a home and having no significance. The artist’s craft is presented rather than the spirit or essence of what the piece means.
