Summary/Abstract: In the article it is claimed that the demand of sincerity and authenticity in art could be explained within Kant’s aesthetic theory, namely in terms of disinterestedness and universal communicability of the beautiful. The distinction between beautiful and agreeable is carried out and it is shown that the “pathological” pleasure in the last, conceived in all its range (including the snobbery), can rob the art of its authenticity and unaffectedness. The authenticity in the dimension of the authorship and the publicity is to be understood as non-psychological existential sincerity and in the dimension of the work of art as its organic character.
