(And we're not the ones who need to look the word up... in fact, you are. And not in a dictionary, go for an art history textbook, read a bit, and get a basis of what you obviously have no comprehension of)
I mean your statement is saying that artists like (to name the particularly famous ones) Chagall, De Chirico, Leger, Mondrian, Picasso and too many others aren't artists with technical skill is... absurd. I mean, while you're condemning art movements, where odes it stop? What about pointillism, surrealism, Impressionism? They're not hardcore 'realism', but that doesn't mean that they don't have merit, and don't require a hell of a lot of work to produce.

Often there is no more than a little plaque to reveal that, against all gynecological probability, someone very famous was born halfway up a wall.
