nope, there is YOUR standard which is not a universal standard.

someone could easily say that cy twombly or franz kline or aaron siskind, or picasso or miro's or man ray's works are crap, easily.

a 5 year old prodigy...
it's all opinion, world view, personal experience and a judgement call, but it isn't because of any sort of standard.
