Definition
someone who is spectacularly skilled in a particular field
  • In the past such a state of affairs has usually resolved itself into a motionless Alexandrianism, an academicism in which the really important issues are left untouched because they involve controversy, and in which creative activity dwindles to virtuosity in the small details of form, all larger questions being decided by the precedent of the old masters.

There are no more uses of "virtuoso" in Avant-garde and Kitsch.
