ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the philosophy behind British art appreciation and aesthetics. The author bases his opinions on the paper "Quality in Art," by Jeffrey Wieand, who discusses the way in which the two differing ideas of the facts of art status and artistic value can be accommodated in aesthetics. Facts argued include that both these ideas are based on decisions by those considered to be the right people such as artists, critics, and gallery owners. Also discussed is the argument of Wieand that it is rational to believe art is worthy of appreciation, and that there exists a contrast between historical objects and aesthetic works.
