Why is originality important in art
Originality in art is important and asking why it’s important is a great question that has many good answers. It can be debated to this day as to what is the absolute correct answer.
Why is originality important in art? Most art galleries refuse to sell replicas, and many sponsors of art fairs and festivals either do not permit them or require them to be kept in a reproduction container with no additional information about how the replicas were produced. It seems the biggest reason why is that according to most folks they would rather have the original and not a replica. It takes skill to create originality and comes from developing your own style usually after many years of practicing, trial and error and learning. Some art museums maintain reproductions take money away from what might be spent on original artwork. Replicas are not to be confused with reproductions or giclees.
