Quite likely some academics have done well. More likely (in my opinion) is that they did little to nothing to advance art movements, other than inspiring others to not agree with them, and not follow their suggestions.
Does having a degree in fine art make me an academic? Am I not allowed to rebel against established movements in the world of art?
