The Truth About Art | History you have never heard | The Cave of Apelles

The real roots of art are in the philosophy of Kant and Hegel. This is how we have come to see the modern art that dominates today and the false history that claims it is linked to the masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, etc.. all the way back to Ancient Greece. Despite the fact that the philosophy that dominates in art is in direct opposition to the values of Ancient Greece and the renaissance which followed the philosophy of Aristotle.
