Sumario:Broad and diverse themes, full of nuances, changes and interpretations throughout history, and at the same time a lot of ambiguities. A reflection in this sense can only have a subjective character, based on the reflection itself and the experience of contact with the artistic context, and does not imply in any case, the elaboration of a specialized knowledge, but only the possibility of sharing ideas and suggestions on topics that are naturally open and approximate, susceptible to controversial interpretation. The reason is obvious; On the one hand, they affect the concept of art and art, and consequently, the valuation that each historical moment has fostered or accepted of these concepts; On the other hand, the social perception of the artist and his work has oscillated in an extraordinary way from one moment to another throughout our civilization, which includes situations as diverse as the ancient world, unionized work in the Middle Ages, or the strong current individualism and the decisive entrance to the work of art as a stellar element of a powerful market on the rise.
