The word 'talent' has several dictionary definitions. For instance the top 3 at are:

1. A special natural ability or aptitude: "A talent for drawing."

2. A capacity for achievement or success; ability: "Young men of talent."

3. A talented person: "The cast includes many of the theater's major talents."

That first one is where I disagree most. That is, if 'talent' means some lucky few are blessed at birth with abilities which the rest will never have.

I believe that anyone, who is not in some way handicapped, can create good visual art - no 'talent' required.

Are some people specially good at it? Sure, but is that from nature or nurture? Or both?

I doubt they'll ever find a gene coded for art skills. But I don't doubt that the best visual artists have for years nurtured their personal vision, their ability to observe keenly, their design sense and their understanding of visual communication principles.
