These people are on an alien planet studying the ruins of an ancient civilization. It then flashes back to why the civilization fell…

This scientist sues a museum of forgeries and claims one of their artefacts is genuine. He wins his case and reveals he has developed a machine for measuring the intensity of art. This machine revolutionises the art world and eventually they develop a pill that gives people aesthetic sensations, which causes civilization to collapse.

It was really good. I read it some time ago and cant think of its name. Please help.
