Art should tell the viewer something. It should stir up an emotion(s). The imposter's interpretation is always inferior. Why? S/he is a wanna be, an inferior person. The master can reach heights of creativity that the imposter can only dream about. Imposters usually don't have a Soul, thus their work leaves a void. A person with a Soul can usually spot a fake. How? S/he can't connect with it, can't "feel" it. This inferior man wasted his entire life lying to people. Would I pay millions of dollars for a painting? Yes, if I researched it first...and then "felt" it.
