In fact, this problem will be divided into two aspects, one is the value of the art itself, the other is the historical standard of evaluation. A sincere artistic creation is an artist's real response to his or her inner world and the outside world. It is also an end product of the artist's aesthetic realm. Then whether the value of the art of art is accepted is whether the aesthetic realm or aesthetic orientation of the artist is accepted by the times or the public.
The reason for their not being accepted is nothing more than the disharmony of the social aesthetic orientation or ideology at that time, this is two cases, one is the work itself does not have any aesthetic value; the other is the aesthetic taste, the way of expression and the aesthetic realm embodied in the works of art surpass the era. Back to the problem itself, many works of art that were not widely accepted at that time but were much praised in the next era are actually works of change establishing a precedent.
For example, the father of modern painting Cezanne and his contemporaries of Impressionist were neither accepted by the mainstream schools, nor the public. However, their paintings inspired the later outbreak of the modern art movement and let people step toward the modern era of art. Another example is the suite The Rite of Spring produced by a great musician Stravinsky in the early Twentieth Century, it depicts the masses fight in the theatre and scolded modern music, but the work laid the basic form of modern musicals. Innovative works will always be questioned, opposed, and even mocked, but the really great art is beyond the times.
Art, religion, and philosophy are the three fields reflect people's souls and art moves ahead of religion and philosophy because the transformation of the time and thought is often first occurred in the field of art. This also forms the awkward situation of the art we often see. The historical evaluation is often corrected after an era so as to break through the limitations of former time. All in all, future generations' evaluation of the history of would be somewhat more objective than before.
