Why is Modern Art so Bad?

For two millennia, great artists set the standard for beauty. Now those standards are gone. Modern art is a competition between the ugly and the twisted; the most shocking wins. What happened? How did the beautiful come to be reviled and bad taste come to be celebrated? Renowned artist Robert Florczak explains the history and the mystery behind this change and how it can be stopped and even reversed. Donate today to PragerU! Joining PragerU is free!

For a score of centuries, artists enriched Western society with their works of astonishing beauty. The Night Watch. The Thinker. The Rocky Mountains. Master after master, from Leonardo, to Rembrandt, to Bierstadt, produced works that inspired, uplifted, and deepened us. And they did this by demanding of themselves the highest standards of excellence, improving upon the work of each previous generation of masters, and continuing to aspire to the highest quality attainable. But something happened on the way to the 20th Century. The profound, the inspiring and the beautiful were replaced by the new, the different, and the ugly. Today the silly, the pointless, and the purely offensive are held up as the best of modern art. Michelangelo carved his David out of a rock. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art just offers us a rock, -- a rock -- all 340 tons of it. That's how far standards have fallen. How did this happen? How did the thousand-year ascent towards artistic perfection and excellence die out? It didn't. It was pushed out. Beginning in the late 19th century, a group dubbed The Impressionists rebelled against the French Academie des Beaux Arts and its demand for classical standards. Whatever their intentions, the new modernists sowed the seeds of aesthetic relativism -- the beauty is in the eye of the beholder mentality. Today everybody loves the Impressionists. And, as with most revolutions, the first generation or so produced work of genuine merit. Monet, Renoir, and Degas still maintained elements of disciplined design and execution, but with each new generation standards declined until there were no standards. All that was left was personal expression. The great art historian Jacob Rosenberg wrote that quality in art is not merely a matter of personal opinion but to a high degree.. objectively traceable. But the idea of a universal standard of quality in art is now usually met with strong resistance if not open ridicule. How can art be objectively measured? I'm challenged. In responding, I simply point to the artistic results produced by universal standards compared to what is produced by relativism. The former gave the world The Birth of Venus and The Dying Gaul, while the latter has given us The Holy Virgin Mary, fashioned with cow dung and pornographic images, and Petra, the prize-winning sculpture of a policewoman squatting and urinating -- complete with a puddle of synthetic urine. Without aesthetic standards we have no way to determine quality or inferiority. Here's a test I give my graduate students, all talented and well educated. Please analyze this Jackson Pollock painting and explain why it is good. It is only after they give very eloquent answers that I inform them that the painting is actually a close up of my studio apron. I don't blame them; I would probably have done the same since it's nearly impossible to differentiate between the two. For the complete script, visit

As an artist myself, I am often overly criticized by people that think I should do more shocking and overtly edgy drawings, but I enjoy the work that I do. I would not classify myself as a modern artist, nor would I be able to say that I am a classic one. Just that I do what I like, and I discover new techniques to make my art look like real things, such as textured stone and wood. I draw designs that evoke feelings in people, not just convey an ideological thing that art should be. For years I never called myself an artist, I let others do that for me, validating, eventually that I was a real artist. So called modern art doesn't appeal to me, mainly because I don't feel anything when I look at a splash of paint or a yellow stripe on a red canvas. To me art is about expression, however, expressing yourself, not just what is deemed to be shocking or obscene just to sell a painting. I didn't mean for this to be such a rant, but my art is something that I take very seriously and I put a lot of thought, time and effort into achieving my personal best everytime I create something.

Actually modern art or post modernism is somewhat of a satire of the previous modernism which saw artists innovating to convey more than just the physical world, Picasso is a good example of modernism, but post modernism started off making fun of that by way of parody thus the complete lack of form, somewhere along the line hey forgot why they where doing it and started to genuinely believe they where making good art

What happened is that the advent of photography rendered artistic realism obsolete (the apparent focus of what the right professor believes has value). Duchamp and others noted the uselessness of learning to paint like a realistic master when you might as well shoot a photo. We needed something new and revolutionary. Admittedly there is crap in the field of modern art, some of it says nothing and has very low production values. However, some of it is transformative. Consider Picasso's Guernica, which is absolutely approachable without needing a degree in fine art. Even a number of uneducated peasants who survived the Nazi attack immediately understood the meaning of the painting and were reduced to tears despite the fact that it's an abstraction. I would argue that a realistic painting by an old master might have less impact. Modern art is often not literal and forces one to use one's mind. The best filmmakers (Hitchcock, etc.) know that the non-literal is in many cases more powerful than the literal. One example is that the monster that you never see is way more scary than the most gruesome creation of Hollywood's backlot. I think the video is academically lazy.

I heard a story a friend of mine told me last week. To sum up (according to what he said to me): Some black girl cliché showed up at the museum he work in (well as a janitor but still) and she *demanded* that her paintings be exhibited as the central masterpiece of the main hall (note the level of modesty). After seing the said painting, his superior (curator of the museum) asked the girl to leave after telling her We are exposing art here miss. (Apparently she was so arrogant that she acted as if she was superior to him and that she know better than him how art actually work or something, basically insulting his intelligence). Later on, my friend act like he was interrested because he wanted a picture of0 the said painting to see why it was rejected. Turns out it wasn't even a painting, it was just a big canvas with picture of Macron's face (Macron the french president, should have precise that I'm french before telling you all this) on top of poop (like Macron's head is the poop's head) picture with White = Racisme written on the side of it. So anyone can think whatever he/ she wants about politics but showing it in such an immature and arrogant way and demanding your photoshoped shit to be exposed in a Museum as a painting when it was just a printed photoshop picture. Is just outrageaous to me.

The hailed Jackson Pollock who just splattered paint on a sheet. It didn't look awful because frankly any splat of paint on paper is nice regardless of the composition, and his choice of colors wasn't bad, but I would put a price of no more than 5$ on each of his works, certainely not 100,000,000$

Art has been going down the shitter for a long time,ever since things such as cubism and surrealism arose we started shifting away from painting real things which connect to us meaningfully to increasingly esoteric art which few could understand what little meaning it had to at this point sometimes literal shit

I am a close follower of art, and I admit that I do like a lot of artists that you guys would probably call trash. But that's okay, because there are still great artists that I think you guys will like, and that don't get the attention they deserve. These guys aren't anything like Pollock, Duchamp, or Koons (I hate Koons with a lot of passion), so I hope they're more palatable. 1. Neo Rauch: If you're looking for something along the lines of Renaissance and Baroque art, Rauch's art is a great fusion of Surrealism and the old classics. He just simply takes a basic formula and makes it weird, and I love it. 2. Kehinde Wiley: Perhaps that savior of contemporary portrait painting, Wiley consistently puts out stuff that is just darn beautiful. He did Obama's portrait in 2018, and while you guys probably aren't fans of Obama. at least the painting looks pretty. 3. Yinka Shonibare: Shonibare's sculptures are colorful and weird, and highlight rich colonial history that attempts to fuse the identity of the colonizer and the colonized. 4. Zeng Fanzhi: An artist that tries a new and fresh take on the traditional landscape painting as well as following in the steps of George Grosz's satire painting. (Grosz is my favorite of all time) 5. Kerry James Marshall: Marshall creates beauty in such a creepy way. But what I really find striking about Marshall's art is that it unsettles its viewers in such a simple manner, a change of skin color. (If you guys are interested in creepy stuff check of Ron Mueck) Anyway, I hope that I was able to introduce good stuff to you guys.

Also, the real irony is that this video is in itself an example of modern art if one goes by the same rules. Why are you using bland solid color backgrounds, stick figures, and brutalist fonts? This video is also intended to sell an ideology. Thus, you're using an example of garbage art to make claims against garbage art. Now, re-upload a version of this video that actually adheres to the principles you're insisting on so that your message actually has some merit.

Modern art is shit, just as modern music and architecture are shit, *because it is satanic* We have turned away from God, it is called *decadence* and it hits in stages. The first victim was beauty, the second victim was ethic and the third victim is truth.

No citations and oversimplified--and this is supposedly a university video. I think we found the lowered standards, and they're not in the art world. This is not a university, and should not lie and say it is. I also took a second to google Robert Florczak. Turns out he only has a BA from some unheard of school and does not teach at a university at all--he has no graduate students, and never has. He is a commercial illustrator, mostly working in book covers and signage. Certainly not someone capable of lecturing on this matter.

It will take much effort to reverse the damage that has been inflicted upon world culture / world civilization since the early 20th century. The demoralization of humanity through ugliness is an on-going attack. It is so pervasive that it cannot be properly understood without studying political history and secondly, and more importantly, the fundamental structure of natural law. In short, the standards of art will not change until the idols of ugliness are destroyed and the only way to destroy them is by understanding what it means to behold the beautiful in accordance to its philosophical imperative, ie, the beautiful soul. In addition to the above, the art market will never admit its follies; too much money is at stake. Is there an art dealer, art critic, or art professor who would dare publicly denounce a Picasso or Pollock without suffering scorn and ridicule from his peers (for all the wrong reasons)? Is there an art investor or investment group that will have the courage to admit that their 50 million dollar scribble painting is only as good as its inflated market value? Answer: Nobody will rock the boat. 1) It's tantamount to financial ruin. 2) Too many people have built their careers on a lie / a total mockery and a farce. Hence, Picasso and Pollock will continue to be championed as geniuses (for who else but a genius would paint drivel and be championed), while true artists, TRUE PAINTERS, like James Tissot or Frédéric Bazille or Jean-Léon Gérôme (to name but a few off hand) are hardly known to the average art tourist. More the pity, for they are the true victims of this reversal of values.

I have been an artwork & picture framer my entire adult life. So I have seen & done it all from an original Dali or Dutch Master to every single US President's autograph or even Frank Sinatra's hair piece. Just because a particular artist, art dealer or memorabilia collector states that this is worth $10k+ doesn't necessarily make it so. As if I am supposed to be impressed or too scared to handle it. I have framed single works in excess of 6 figures equating to multiple millions even within a single year. I don't care if it cost $10 (or even free), they all get treated the same way. A vast majority of so called modern art could be done better by a 5th grader or even younger all the way down to preschool.

TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION OF WHY MODERN ART IS SO BAD, IS VERY EASY. MODERN ART IS SO BAD BECAUSE WHAT IS CONSIDERED AS ART BY ART CRITICS IS ONLY A SMALL PARCEL OF THE WHOLE ART BEING CREATED. MODERN ART CRITICS ONLY CONSIDER GOOD ART THAT WHICH REPRESENTS IDEOLOIGIES THAT ARE MARXIST, NIHILISTIC, INSANE, CHAOTIC, HEDONISTIC AND TRANSGENDER. SINCE THE ART THEY LIKE REPRESENTS THESE BAD IDEOLOGIES THAT ARE BEING PROMOTED BY THE FAILING INTELLECTUALS OF A DECLINING WEST THE ART IS ALSO BAD. IN SHORT MODERN ART IS  BAD BECAUSE THE IDEOLOGY THEY REPRESENT ARE BAD.

I knew that wasn't a Jackson Pollack. Over time I had collected a lot of paints. One day I opened them and put sticks in each, then placing the canvas on the floor, dripped,spattered,flung paint to create my own Jackson Pollack style painting. It was fun, and looked like a Pollack painting.

Patrons of modern art are usually wealthy women who pick who they like based on things having nothing whatsoever to do with actual art but ways to be annoying or because they love the person making the art Or because they want to do something with the money they maybe didn't earn. That's what has replaced the church as the main patrons of the arts.

Same goes for music, an example of classicism - Mozart's 40th symphony (1788) (analysis on the beauty of balance and symmetry between diatonicism and chromaticism), whereas a good example of modernism shxx would be John Cage's 4'33 (1952) (a piece of music where the performers just sit and do nothing for 4 minutes 33 seconds) modern serialism = just keep spamming atonality and dissonance til everything becomes noise

The reason why is that, as art continued, people got bored. Someone creating a lifelike drawing just wasn’t interesting so people began to experiment. This started with people like Leonardo Da Vinci and later movements such as Memphis. As people started to see more of this stuff looked down upon by the older art snobs, each newer new thing made the last stuff seem less bad, so it was accepted by the community. This has now continued to such a degree that you get people that literally just draw a line through a piece of paper or drink paint and sick it back up. This kind of thing really is unavoidable in the art snob community and as artists can easily get fame by following a trend or starting a new one, it all just spirals out of control. In the normal arty people community or NAP as I like to call them, the Da Vinci type is most popular due to it still taking effort yet still being different.

I do not agree with the video. While I agree that there are few artists who are actually fraud. However, there are artists like Picasso, who experiment and evolve their art. Picasso started with 'realistic' paintings, blue period-pink period, then concentrated on mass of human body, cubism etc. Please understand when camera was invented, impressionists started painting pictures in certain manner. Why do we need a paintings made just as realistic as a picture taken by camera? You need to study paintings of Van Gogh and my favorite painting ''scream' by Edvard Munch. Do you think such a paintings can be brought by camera or 'realistic' paintings. When an artist is painting a subject, it is just one's good draftsmanship, a mere skill to look and copy from nature. This copying can be made nowadays by computers or xerox machines. What about the emotions of the artist? Of course, you might argue that artists paint emotionally and hence paints picture in certain style. My question is how much of the emotion is involved - !0%, 20%, most of the concentration is on copying the subject. If my point was not true, then every portrait painted exactly would be amazing. There are some great portraits that look striking and touches our heart. When a child who lacks skill (draftsmanship) paints something, they draw with 100% honesty and emotion. This is why Picasso said every child is an artist. When you showed 'that painting of Jackson Pollock', I did know that is not his painting, so of many of artists and art lovers. Any psychologist will understand Pollock's work. He didn't just splash colors around. He understood that there is human subconscious mind. When we are scratching on a piece of paper, we are subconsciously making something that is in our mind without our knowledge. There is no skill involved but all emotion. Just disregarding all the contemporary art works and artists as fraud is pure ignorance.

A “white painting” or “canned artist shit” don’t inspire anyone to work hard on their craft, you dont know that. And besides whats the argument that artists need to be given inspiration? Life can be a great source of inspiration. There is no such thing as an objective standard when it comes to art, especially since art itself is basically an undefined word.
Midnight Respawn 2 months ago
It is subjective, but inspirational art like the Mona lisa, pieta and the girl with a pearl earring give artist a level of skill to aspire to obtain and surpass. A “white painting” or “canned artist shit” don’t inspire anyone to work hard on their craft, it’s a joke. As a viewer you can like and dislike whatever you see fit, but if you yourself decide one day to start painting you’ll understand why there’s objective standards even if the art is subjective on its own.
