    .....ridicule critics as frustrated types who can't create their own original works, and so go around ignorantly trashing the work of "real artists".  There are lots of harsh/snarky remarks by artists of all types about critics over the years.  The catch is that w/o critics to review works, there are then no records of premieres or what people thought at the time, apart from artsy types like Harry Graf Kessler in the late 19th and first part of the 20th centuries who kept diaries.
