Beauty in art is not dead. One of the contemporary fans of beauty is the critic Dave Hickey. Personally I see beauty as the initial attractor to the full experience including idea and narrative. Beauty alone is not enough. It is a necessary but not sufficient ingredient. The Jeffrey Thomas Gallery has their own take in a large show Beauty in the Age of Indifference. It includes artists
