Gauleiters of art

This comment by Francis W. Porretto was given about film critics but it describes art critics so well-

 

Critics are the aspiring gauleiters of the entertainment world; they contribute nothing, but they’re dedicated to the proposition that they’re just as important as the actual producers of entertainment. There’s just one problem with all that: if all the critics in the world were to vanish in a puff of sarcasm, the rest of us wouldn’t mourn longer than it takes to read the news flash.

The critics know that. They strive ceaselessly to find ways to promote themselves and their position in the entertainment world.

 

 

One can easily think of a Keshav Malik or a Suneet Chopra in this mould.
