noun. / känəˈso͝or /

1). Technically, a connoisseur is someone with intimate knowledge of an artist or a style. Connoisseurs help judge whether a work of art is authentic and they can maintain the integrity of an artist’s market.

“The connoisseur might be defined as a laconic art historian, and the art historian as a loquacious connoisseur,’ Erwin Panofsky joked.

2). More broadly, a connoisseur is an art lover with their own taste.

3). Connoisseurs in other fields are masters of their own tastes, literally, when it comes to wine, food, and other things that engage the senses.
