What’s the difference between kitsch art and fine art?  Do different levels of art exist?

A recent article links style, consumerism, and class to the top art collectors. The following image shows one of these collectors.

This image shows the connection that this couple has with their art. It is displaying their art in a sense of an expensive house and representing their class. People can be defined in their knowledge of art by displaying their class, based off assumptions and norms in society.

This image alone displays their sense of wealth, class, and education. It is a way to show others their part in life, knowing that lower class individuals do not have images like these.  My question is why would someone take a picture like this? Why do we all feel the need to display our class and education?
