judge and judgment

   In art criticism, judgment is carefully thought out decision making in which one makes a personal decision about an artwork's success or lack of success (not like or dislike), preparing reasons to support this judgment. In art history, after describing, analyzing and interpreting a work, coming to thoughtful conclusions about the work's historical significance. Such conclusions might concern such things as a work's influence on other artists' works, or on the lives of its viewers. "Judgement" is an alternative spelling of "judgment", more commonly used in Britain than in the United States. Also see bias, brainstorming, interesting, and sentiment.
