Description:

The paper examines the reasons Ortega y Gasset provides to explain his belief that traditional art is true art and modern art is just a work of art. The paper argues against Ortega y Gasset's assertions with the belief that his opinions do not take into account the natural progression of the art form.

From the Paper:

"Jose Ortega y Gasset describes what he observes as the "emergence of a new artistic sensibility"(87) in his 1925 essay, "The Dehumanization of Art." His observations in light of "avant-garde" literature, art and theater are compared to his subjective thoughts on the traditional forms of art in poetry, theater and visual art. He argues that traditional art is the "true art" form; whereas, modern art is just art for the sake of art. I disagree with Ortega y Gasset's argument because it is now 2006 and his opinions, although respected, do not take into account the natural progression of the art form."
