    Im writing an assignment on how esthetic work like art can be judged bad in its own time, yet proved genius later in time.
    The assignment is about how you criticise art, and i need some good examples on how some pieces of art can be considered brilliant throughout history.

    Any help appreciated.

    If you have Netflix watch the BBC series "The Impressionists". If not do a little research on impressionist painters.

    If you are including music there is The Rite of Spring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The premiere involved one of the most famous classical music riots in history. The intensely rhythmic score and primitive scenario and choreography shocked the audience that was accustomed to the elegant conventions of classical ballet.

    The complex music and violent dance steps depicting fertility rites first drew catcalls and whistles from the crowd. At the start, some members of the audience began to boo loudly. There were loud arguments in the audience between supporters and opponents of the work. These were soon followed by shouts and fistfights in the aisles. The unrest in the audience eventually degenerated into a riot.

    One could look to the "degenerate" art exhibit of the Nazis.

    Behind the enlightening rod.
    Literature: Moby Dick, a big flop when first released. It is doubtful whether anyone who wrote like Dickens could get published today, also. Shakespeare, Dickens, Verdi, all wrote for the masses, it was popular entertainment, but vastly superior to "reality" television programming by any standard...

    Good thread, thank you.
