synonym for legacy Hi What is the best definition of legacy in this context? Training powerful tools and techniques on a work of art can fetishize it, treating it as a relic whose every mark takes on theological import. But it can also humanize the object by making it seem contingent -- not an unalterable masterpiece but a resting point along a journey. In the exhibition, which includes a room dedicated to the technical analysis of the paintings, the curators, Ron Spronk and Harry Cooper, have laid bare the hesitations and rethinkings that lie behind these serenely abstract works. In this case, the technical analysis revealed something unexpected in the character of the notably reserved Mondrian. ''What really surprised me,'' Mr. Spronk recalled, ''was the vigor and the incredible energy, how laborious these reworkings were and to what length Mondrian went to attain these paintings" serenely abstract works. it seems certain that these tools will play a greater role in the preservation of modernism and in how future generations interpret its legacy. Thank you

"Legacy" is often used to talk about the lasting impact that something has on society, as is the case here. So instead you could say impact, importance, relevance, etc.
