Such a thing as a real artist?

@RafiqueFauzia You are right. I can only •speculate• that if there were such an animal then the real artist rises above their art to a level of reality that is so personally enlightening that it transforms without apparent reason and applause may confirm their having resonated with their audience for a reason or Reality that the artist alone is living with, the generator of their work. To illustrate I would recklessly juxtapose Beethoven and Tchaikovsky against Mozart and Bach. As such the problem cannot be solved here because transformation and the transformative value of art on consciousness is subjective.
