Publié le par Pierre W. Johnson

According to an interview of Galenson, there are two types of geniuses. Galenson, economist, 56, studied extensively the value (price) of paintings by a variety of famous painters in relation to the age at which they painted it, and found that there are basically two types of human  creativity or genius :

  • Conceptual innovators, create young. Examples : Picasso, Serrat. They create through innovative "ideas", or concepts, which they apply at high speed.
  • Experimental innovators, need lifetime experiment, and create more lately. Their creation process is slower and sometimes almost imperceptible. It is made of gradual changes, quality jump is done through multiple quantitative increment. Examples : Franck L. Wright..., and the author himself !
