wb54885, I believe you, along with the rest of us, are pondering age-old questions: what constitutes art? Is some art better than other art? And what is the interplay between art and proficiency?

I don't know anything about music but my wife was an art history major so we're in a lot of museums and over the years have talked quite a bit about painting. If we were to compare two renaissance paintings hanging in a museum, it's probably a good bet both artists achieved the level of proficiency necessary to create their art.

Once proficiency has been attained, while we might say one artist is more proficient than the other, one painting may evoke more of an emotional response with me, the other painting may resonate with my wife. I don't believe it's possible to say one painting is better than another.  I'm sure you see where this is going, but substitute "pizza" for "painting" you'll have my view.

best,

In the e̶y̶e̶ taste buds of the beholder.
Hans
