The Caesar’s New Clothes
In case you don’t already know the story, I’ll thumbnail it here, for you, so that you will, afterward, be able to compare any abstract artist to the “weavers” in the story. The tale is about a Caesar, who was a fop, a dude, a “clothes horse” – in other words, he was obsessed with showing off a different set of clothing every hour or so. 2 swindlers came to town, and spread about the rumour, that they were weavers, of magical cloth. The cloth, they claimed, could be seen only by worthy folks, but it turned invisible, to the unworthy, and the stupid. Throughout the weaving process, nobody could see the thread, nor the cloth, for there was none there.
Yet nobody wanted to admit that he could not see them, so they pretended to see the thread and the cloth. By and by, the Caesar went on parade, thinking that he was wearing a suit of new clothes, yet he could not see them, and he would not admit it. Of course nobody in the crowd could see them either, because there was actually nothing there.

It was a scam. Everybody thought that they themselves were too unworthy or stupid to see the clothing, and they were too embarrassed to admit it, so they kept shut their mouths. Finally a young child said, “The Caesar has no clothes on”, and at that time all realized that they had been scammed.
How The Research Was Done
The research project quizzed 50,000 folks online. It was a test, to tell the celebrated abstract paintings from the ones made by the man, who designed the test. 6 images were of celebrated abstract
Maybe The Researcher Was A Great Artist
One weakness, in the test, that I noticed was, perhaps the tester himself is an uncelebrated, yet great, abstract artist! Maybe he gave, to himself, too little credit?

How can we apply these thoughts, on abstract
I would say, just ignore the
Scholarships, Mentors, And Institutions
Check to see if they have gotten any awards or scholarships during their school years. If they have, it is a foreboding of further favor from “the authorities”. All the above is for artists who have not yet gotten major recognition, so that their works may be truly cheap, still. At the next level, of expensiveness, has the artist been taken “under the wing” of any celebrated artist already? Has any powerful newspaper, magazine, or television news show shown any interest in them? Has any noteworthy institution requested their
