There's Art and Then There's Fart


A Lucio Fontana "Concetto Spaziale, New York 21" put the sale back on track.

The battered copper plaque, slashed through in the central area with further haphazard dents, dates from 1962. The Spatial Concept went up to £914,850. This is not bad for something that resembles a metal piece picked up on the local scrap heap. -- Sotheby's Sale Leaves Its Audience Dazed - NYTimes.com

Your Say

Again, I must recommend Tom Wolfe's "The Painted Word", which, to the world of modern art, is the equivalent of "The Emperor's New Clothes".

Judging by that piece of crap, my turds must be worth a million.
