Grayson Perry’s Reith Lectures: Who decides what makes art good?

I want to talk about the issue of quality because I think this is one of the most burning issues around art – how do we tell if something is good? And who tells us that it’s good? That’s perhaps even more important. And of course now, in the art world as it is, does it really matter? And I want to talk about what are the criteria by which we judge art made today.

Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy, David Hockney One of David Hockney‘s most impressive and renowned pictures is a portrait of his friends, the fashion designer Ossie Clark and the textile designer Celia Birtwell — and their cat Percy. Oil Painting For Beginners, Oil Painting Techniques, Acrylic Painting Lessons, Acrylic Paintings, Painting Tips, David Hockney, Celia Birtwell, Ossie Clark, Open Window

On the lap of Ossie Clark is the white cat which according to the painting’s title is called Percy. Actually, although the couple had a cat called Percy, this was their other cat, called Blanche. So why switch the name of the cat? One reason could possibly be that the cat, because it is sittings upright on the man’s crotch, should have the slang term for a penis, Percy!!!
