the painting looks a lot like a typical german town at the turn of the century.

...just me stating the obvious.

Unless of course the art actually reflects and contains those qualities of the artist that the artist was hated/despised for.

Well if the art 'reflects' the (hypothetical) artist's own 'despicable' qualities, then I would guess that you judge the art as it stands.

Then again, in my book anything worth calling 'art' does a little more than merely push a certain opinion. It's bigger than that. Which is why some very small, cruel people have managed to rise above themselves through their chosen artistic medium, leaving behind something better than themselves.

I agree with the basic idea. Some sweetheart might write a song that stinks, and some jerk might write a song that's gorgeous. I've heard that various and sundry talented people were 's as people. Some perfectly sweet people can't break out of mediocrity.
