English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. connoisseur

    Etymologically, the amateur is one who loves, the connoisseur one who knows. In usage, the term amateur is applied to one who pursues any study or art simply from the love of it; the word carries a natural implication of superficialness, tho marked excellence is at times attained by amateurs. A connoisseur is supposed to be so thoroughly informed regarding any art or work as to be able to criticize or select intelligently and authoritatively; there are many incompetent critics, but there can not, in the true sense, be an incompetent connoisseur. The amateur practises to some extent that in regard to which he may not be well informed; the connoisseur is well informed in regard to that which he may not practise at all. A novice or tyro may be a professional; an amateur never is; the amateur may be skilled and experienced as the novice or tyro never is. Dilettante, which had originally the sense of amateur, has to some extent come to denote one who is superficial, pretentious, and affected, whether in theory or practise.

    Synonyms:
    amateur, critic, dilettante, novice, tyro

    Preposition:
    An amateur in art.

How to use connoisseur in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's been debated for years whether Beauty is in the eye of the beholder or Beauty is in the heart of the beholder. Yet it's not so well appreciated that Beauty can be totally worthless without her true appreciator. As Sir Allama Iqbal pointed out in his poetry: "For a thousand years the most beautiful and rare flower of Narcissus (or Nargis) laments her blindness. It's with great difficulties that the one with true vision is ever born in the garden." I also believe that either Beauty or Creativity or Genius attains her true meaning only after meeting with her authentic aficionado, her true appreciator; and that seldom happens easily. A connoisseur is therefore absolutely critical, IMHO, for the existence of Beauty, Creativity and Genius in our world.
