What do you think gives art meaning?

In 1918 Russian artist Kazemir Malevich made a painting of a white square on a white background called  Suprematist Composition: White on White. Some called this a radical act in response to the Russian Revolution. The artist proclaimed his painting “pure feeling and perception”.  Others decried it art that could be done by a house painter. In 2008 a Malevich abstract painting sold at Sotheby’s New York for $60 million.
