The annals of art impresario and art star figures operating for an extensive audience extends back to the 18th century. Art traders in Britain began to be important in the time scale between 1714-1830 – unlike antiquities who acted according to the tastes of art patrons, they certainly were people who played a part in shaping tastes. At the same time frame, British and American artists, who envied the enormous entrepreneurial success of artists like Rubens and wanted to improve their status instead to be merely artisans, began to prepare themselves and create their particular markets. The institution they used for this purpose was the Royal Academy, led by an Englishman (Sir Joshua Reynolds) and then an American (Benjamin West).

The roots of the art-money relationship today return to the founding of Burlington House, which hosted the Royal Academy exhibitions; Both opposite poles representing the artist’s attitude towards the market are summarized in the words of two men who lived in the 18th century. “Art can’t be made where money appears,” wrote William Blake, the fierce but weak enemy of Sir Joshua. Samuel Johnson in the other pole is as much as wholesaler as Blake: “No body, except fools, wrote anything but money.”
It is advantageous to consider the facts somewhere between these two poles, probably the pole represented by Johnson rather than Blake will outweigh. The fact remains, I surely could become art in places where money manifests itself. The proven fact that money, patronage, and trade automatically pollute the fountains of imagination is really a sophisticated story book – a story book that some utopian leftists and several genius like Blake believed, but history clearly dictates. The works of Tiziano and Bernini, Piero della Francesca and Poussin, Reisener and Chippendale would not have existed without someone who paid for them – and paid well. Picasso had become a millionaire in 40, but this did not have a poor affect his artistry. On another hand, there are such painters whose names I will leave to your imagination that even if they’re 30 millionaires, there could be no positive development inside their artistry. It is necessary to include front of young star candidates, that are wandering around as if they’re indispensable Indian fabrics and swollen enough to exceed their ego height thanks to the art market, because of the lack of self-interest and loss of self-confidence. Generally speaking, money benefits artists more than harm. No-one believes anymore that the grappling with the creditors who train on cold water and dry bread and rely on the doorway feeds the artist; Just as the belief that beating is an excellent breeding method, this belief almost lost its judgment.

So now I’m not planning to repeat you a situation that we have already been told by new conservatives and we’re already familiar with: the story of talent that unnecessarily spoils with great funds from the National Arts Foundation and the Humanities Foundation. Anyone who meets the conditions of the American culture knows that the reality share in this story doesn’t go beyond the fantasies that Ronald Reagan has create about the poor who made their food scorecards in vodka and received social aid allowances. Obviously, both of these foundations spend unnecessary costs because cost efficiency is not possible when it comes to works of art. It is also true that a few of the products they support attract the minority taste and are liked by at the very top group. However, the National Arts Foundation, so far as I understand, doesn’t pay taxpayers $ 433.45 for a screwdriver or $ 1700 for a metal ladder, while the Ministry of Defense does; moreover, what we call war – a sophisticated sophist – is a group appreciation that interests the taste of an elite. So my main intention here’s not how a money-art relationship affects the artist, but what effect it has on art audiences – inevitably a large which includes artists and other art professionals, but has expanded tremendously in the last 25 years.

The church largely left its destination for a the museum as a symbolic focus of the American city. Museums are now converted into low-cost mass media. With this specific transformation, museums adopted the strategies of other mass media, partly beneath the influence of transitions, partly intentionally: highlighting the magnificent show, cult of fame, masterpiece-treasure syndrome, etc. Only through these tools can museums retain the loyalty of these unprecedentedly broad audience, or rather, they think so.
