That might depend on whether it was constructive criticism or thinly-veiled insults, but I would listen calmly to the criticism, think carefully about what it might be telling me about myself, *and* about the critic themselves, and look for ways the criticism might help me behave more ethically or communicate more effectively in the future.

Either way I choose not to take offence, as it really doesn't help. If the critic intends to offend you, taking offence only gratifies them. If they mean no offence, and simply have poor communication skills, taking offence makes their attempts to communicate even more frustrating. Choosing not to take offence is a skill, mastered through persistent practice.

Criticism points out the mistakes and areas in need of improvement in a piece of work -in a book, for example.

Many people can't deal with criticism, because it can hurt to hear you made a mistake on something you worked hard on.

As a matter of philosophy, I would say, check out the art history - who the artist was, where he was located, materials he used and perhaps, who his contemporaries were. Art criticism is more about how successful the artist was in achieving his goal. With a knowledge of art history you would be able to understand more about the criticism.
