Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh is a monumentally famous painting. It is beloved by people around the world. If tomorrow, it was revealed that Van Gogh had actually worked with two other madly talented painters to create the masterpiece, would we think it any less beautiful?

The answer, [according to researchers], is yes… Our perception of art, they found, is largely dictated by the amount of time and effort we think went into it. This notion was first put forth by Denis Dutton in his book The Art Instinct: Beauty, Pleasure, and Human Evolution, where he argued that we evaluate art not just by the final product, but also by the process that created it. We then use our evaluation of the process and final product to determine the quality of the piece we are admiring.

"

Fascinating research on how we value creative work differently depending on whether we think it’s the product of a single person or a collaborative endeavor. 

Anecdotally, I’ve found over the years that people are far more likely to donate to Brain Pickings when they realize it’s a one-woman labor of love.
