The sum of it is that no dealer, curator, buyer, or critic, or any existing combination of these, can be depended on to produce a reputation that is more than a momentary flurry.

Harold Rosenberg was a prominent art critic, writing for the New Yorker in the 60s. I found this quote in Old Masters and Young Geniuses. It's from 1965, but it still seems valid today.
