For me there's a borderline case where this is generally true: the 
distinction between art that
seems to be of itself, and art that seems to reflect a human volition. 
Kakfa, for instance,
seems to have regarded the latter as "the wrong kind of writing." 
Malraux also famously
wrote of the dissolution of the artist in the artwork.
