1.)   Foundation Membership Plan

You may be a thought Leader in your respective field or Metier and you wish to support our general goals as expressed in our Mission Statement.

 

AND an adherent to Modern connoisseurship is also related to museums, art galleries and “the cult of originality”.

“Connoisseurs evaluate works of art on the basis of aesthetic conclusions.”

The responsibility of the connoisseur is to “attribute authorship, validate authenticity and appraise quality.”

The current “Connoisseur Magazine”, has been developed as a”vehicle” for showcasing Art & Culture, Fine Wine and Food, Restaurants, Travel and Luxury Lifestyle.

 

What does this mean in practical terms?

A recent discussion in the NewYork Times about “Connoisseurship” (which was largely a response to our campaign to enlist public support for the magazine in a campaign initiated on the popular Crowd Funding portal “Indiegogo”) sheds significant light on the concept of connoisseurship and its true meaning in a “social context.”

“Contemporary efforts to apply connoisseurship to a host of far-flung fields are consistent with this history. “Our definition of quality continues to expand and mature,” Dr. Kanter said, “so it makes sense that we can talk now about connoisseurs not just of art but also of rap music, comic books and Scotch.”

“Connoisseurship is not about objects; it’s a process of thinking about and making distinctions among things.”

“True connoisseurs — and this is what makes the label so appealing — do not merely possess knowledge, like scholars. They possess a sixth sense called taste. They are renowned for the unerring judgment of their discerning eye. They are celebrated because of their rare talent — their gift — for identifying and appreciating subtle, often”hidden, qualities.”
