Which is about the time PCs were starting to really grab hold. If there has been decline, I believe it is due to the growth of technology. "Hands on painting" is being overtaken by computer programs which can paint a picture 'better' and much quicker than traditional methods and with far less talent required.
Just my opinion.

Well it may be quicker but I would question better. Personally I like to run my hand over a painting, feel each tiny dab of paint, feel the texture. My current painting has taken a long time to produce (its currently a WIP on this site) . When its done it will not be a masterpiece it will probably never sell, but the sense of achievement will be real. I doubt if I could get all that from a programme.
Maybe Orson Wells was right, the machines will take over, as for myself I prefer the hands on approach as I feel it is a far closer connection to ones own inner self than the machines we call computers that one can no doubt create interesting visual images but lack the connection and are more of a simple act of creating interesting visual stimuli and takes in my opinion far less of what we have called talent in the past. This is not to say it doesn't have merit, just far less of it. I think calling it digital art is too kind of a reference for it. Maybe computer generated graphics would fit it better.
