ABOUT ART CRITICS

Keep in mind that the art critics of the time ridiculed and rejected the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. They cut them and their art to pieces.

Fortunately for us, the impressionists didn´t listen.

I wish I could go back in time and listen to what they had to say about them then, specially Van Gogh.  They must have put him in a shredder...

I will now put on my "Art-Critic-Hat" and give you my opinion:

If a work of art "speaks" to you and/or "stirs" something in you, by all means, take it home. It belongs with you.

If it doesn´t...let it be.

Truth be told: the best art critic in the world is YOU.

Keep in mind that there´s a huge difference between an Art Critic and an Art Consultant.

When buying a piece of art that´s worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and up, such as a Van Gogh or a Da Vinci...you obviously need to have it evaluated and verified by a reputable Art Consultant or someone who is very well versed on the subject and whom you can absolutely trust. 

Here are some good links about art critism:
