  note how MODERN ART DEPRECATES ITS LINK TO BEAUTY
  note comments from ORTEGA y GASSET given below re
       THE DEHUMANIZATION OF ART
  hx> COMMUNISTS PROPOSED THE NEED TO THOROUGHLY DESTROY
      "OLD" VALUES AND SOCIAL ORDER INCLUDING THE IDEA
  UPHELD FOR MILLENNIA THAT ART IS LINKED TO BEAUTY
  THE REVOLT BY "SCIENTIFIC" MATERIALISM PERMEATED
  ARTISTS AND LED TO VARIOUS IDEOLOGIES OF ART

  id+  | ART IS MAN MADE |                        sug> PHRASE
  DECORATIVE ARTS POSE SOME QUESTIONS SINCE       
  IT MAY BE DEBATED IF ARRANGEMENTS OF NATURAL PRODUCTS
  LIKE FLOWERS CAN BECOME "ARTISTIC"
  FOR MOST ART CAN NOT BE A NATURAL PRODUCT
  IT MUST REFLECT UNUSUAL CREATIVE SKILL
  consider PHOTOGRAPHS       see>  IMAGE
  a more conservative view is to reserve the word idea
  "ARTISTIC" for those who possess the
  SKILL OF AN ARTISAN as well as a
  UNIQUE CREATIVE TALENT TO ELUCIDATE BEAUTY
  another DILEMMA ARISES WHEN THE ARTIST IS NOT THE ARTISAN
  as when the OBJECT ORIGINATES FROM INDEPENDENT FORCES
  as in PHOTOGRAPHY or in DECORATIVE ARRANGEMENTS
  note THE BASIS FOR THE SURVIVAL OF CLASSIC WORKS OF ART IS
       THEIR INHERENT BEAUTY RESULTING FORM A UNIQUE MIXTURE
  OF UNIQUE SKILL WITH A CREATIVE TALENT CAPABLE TO
  CAPTURE THE IMAGINATION AND APPRECIATION OF FUTURE GENERATIONS
  note ART IS ONE AVENUE FOR HUMANS TO TRANSCEND THEIR MORTALITY
  THROUGH THE CARE AND VALUATION BY FUTURE GENERATIONS
  WHICH HAVE THE OPTION TO DISPENSE or PRESERVE ARTISTIC WORKS
  note " ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS "                         maxim
  or     ART IS LASTING  LIFE IS BRIEF

  lit+ in "The Dehumanization of Art" by Jose ORTEGA y GASSET [#]
       Doubleday Anchor Books 1952 the author argues that
  "... TO THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE
  AESTHETIC PLEASURE MEANS A STATE OF MIND
  WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY UNDISTINGUISHABLE FROM
  THEIR ORDINARY BEHAVIOR ...
  BUT AN OBJECT OF ART IS ARTISTIC
  ONLY IN SO FAR AS IT IS NOT REAL ...
  NOT MANY PEOPLE ARE CAPABLE OF ADJUSTING {their perceptions
  to revel in the art  and not to focus on the realism of the media}
  NO WONDER THE 19th CENTURY {realistic} ART HAS BEEN SO POPULAR
  ... THE MODERN NEW STYLE CONTAINS
  CERTAIN CLOSELY CONNECTED TENDENCIES {and} TENDS TO
  DEHUMANIZE ART
  AVOID LIVING FORMS
  TO SEE TO IT THAT THE WORK OF ART IS NOTHING BUT A WORK OF ART
  TO CONSIDER ART AS PLAY AND NOTHING ELSE
  TO BE EXISTENTIALLY IRONICAL
  TO REGARD ART AS A THING OF NO TRANSCENDING CONSEQUENCE ... "
