Introduction: Art Critique

About: Perhaps I am the heretical harbinger of the New Archaic, perhaps I just like wood.

When I stand in a museum and wonder how the piece of shlock in front me got there, I follow these steps. Once in a blue moon, I use the same criteria to justify what I like.

Step 1: Defining Art

Step 2: The Real Questions

Step 3: Components of an Artwork

Step 4: Beauty

Step 5: Craft

Step 6: Concept

Step 7: High Art

Step 8: Age

Step 9: Popularity

Step 10: Endorsement

    This would make a better instructable, and more accessible to many people, if you had actual text with each step, not just graphics.

    Thank you for your advice. I am using these as slides for a presentation today, and I will fill in more information based on peoples questions. Is there anything specific that you would like me to explain?

    It's more than just explaining (although that would be very useful). Your graphics cannot be used by people with low vision or who are blind -- they cannot be read by a screen reader, and users cannot set them to be high contrast (black on white) or enlarge the font. They also cannot be processed by online translation software to be available to non-English readers.
