The Antinomy of Artistic and Commercial Value of Art

Cover Page


This article discusses the relationship between artistic and commercial value of art. The author shows the evolution of aesthetic consciousness, arguing that the artistic value of works of art until the end of the XIX century is directly related to the creative talent of individuals. In the contemporary art world, convinced the author, there is a steady and progressive intrusion of money in art. It is noteworthy that not only creative products guaranteed money, but also an art critic is involved in the monetization of art.
