major shift in the art world has been the supplanting of Pablo Picasso
as THE artist of the 20th century by Marcel Duchamp. This displacement
yielded the "Duchamp effect." A similar shift (the "Caravaggio
effect"?) puts that artist ahead of Michelangelo among the Italian
masters. Once upon a time, Vermeer and El Greco were shrouded in
obscurity. Then they too experienced their effect-epiphany.
extent is this model applicable in other fields? http://mitpress.mit.edu/books/
