Good Art

Excerpt from the book 'Shop Class as SoulCraft'

Good art - 

"Often seems to be mysterious because it resists the easy patterns of the fantasy, whereas there is nothing mysterious about the forms of bad art since they are recognizable and familiar rat-runs of selfish day-dream. Good art shows us how difficult it is to be objective by showing us how differently the world looks to an objective vision".

- by Iris Murdoch

So, what it demands is not just mental stamina, but something more fundamental.
