—“Is modern art masculine or feminine?”—Erik Lukovsky

It is not so much masculine versus feminine, but decoration, criticism and ridicule versus art, heroism, and sacredness.

In the sense that modern art is gossip, and traditional art is sacred then yes, modern art is feminine and traditional art is masculine.

Furthermore, modern art is, like gossip and criticism, cheap, whereas traditional heroic art is expensive, like truth and sacredness.

So one of the factors driving modern art is the same as that driving all other forms of fashion: producing consumable status signals for ever lower classes.

And while aristocracy of necessity shall demonstrate masculine values, peasantry of necessity shall demonstrate feminine values.

DIfferences in all forms of capital concentration: individual male, collective female.
