Criticism

Critiquing art involves more than mere subjective opinion-based statements concerning artworks, it is an evaluation based on a variety of criteria. Although philosophers and thinkers have discussed art in a variety of ways for centuries, Art Criticism as a modern genre of writing began in France in the 18th century and was popularized by the works of Diderot, one of the foremost figures of the Enlightenment period. Today, with digital communication technologies art criticism has moved away from traditional high-culture channels and there are numerous web-blogs and popular magazines that produce critiques that are respected in the art world.
