What is Taste?
Last update: 02/12/2012 18:11

Obviously something you cannot define!

Imagine if you could determine the taste, how strange it would be to put it into a form and to standardize it…

 

Tastes! Someone can do it, the quiz is, he can succeed?

I found some quotes on the subject of taste that I loved…

 

“Good Taste is the consciousness of beauty but beauty is nothing but the consciousness of good taste”

Joseph De Maistre, 1753-1821

 

“Good taste is better than bad taste, but bad taste is better than no taste at all”

Arnold Bennett, English poet, 1867-1931

 

“There is nothing more fearful than imagination without taste.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832

 

“Bad taste creates many more millionaires than good taste.”

Charles Bukowski, 1920-1994

 

“What is exhilarating in bad taste is the aristocratic pleasure of giving offense.”

Charles Baudelaire, 1821-1867

 

“Good taste is the worst vice ever invented.”

Edith Sitwell , 1887-1964

 

Once I was had a query… Exceptional artists and I don’t refer to some gallery-made artists, but to considerate and exceptional photographers and not only (nevertheless on that sector I have indulged more) they have done a gorgeous and balanced art but on their daily routine actually you can’t find any taste. How can one have standards and education that is needed to achieve that result in art while the daily routine is incompatible with the artistic expression?

 

I took an answer but it doesn’t satisfy me… Still seeking…

 

I wrote that post by occasion of the photos that I post on photo gallery.
