Hope the money is going to her college fund, or else the whole situation is messed up.


If that was my kid it would be going to my Pappy Van Winkle/Lambo fund.

If they can get the "experts" to appraise the young Picasso's work at a high value, just think what the insurance payout could be if it suddenly got messed up or ruined in an accident of some kind.

Pappy is great for teething issues.

Also, if you have a lambo, they'll never be late for school...

Both sound investments.

I came into this thread with the exact same thoughts, only later saw who opened it.




Either way, I just imagine a whole bunch of hipster/high society type adults walking around a room filled with toddler smears sipping expensive wine, trying to convince everyone that they super duper appreciate the art. Also they're all really smart...

Exactly. This is why you can not just enjoy a coffee without some full bearded man bun type marveling about the citrus tree that might have grown near to the coffee plantage...south of it... and it is old...

Total out of touch with reality.

Usually I'd say to each their own with art. If someone has money and wants to buy art, it makes no difference to me.

It just makes me sad when people make a construct and expectations of a two year old.

People are dumb.

I agree.
Now if a two year old was gifted or a four year old was gifted with an amazing art skill or something like to it. That would have probably blown my mind away but this is ridicules.

Some people with too much money and not enough sense will buy anything if somebody tells them it's cool.

The art market thrives on novelty and bs. All children are born artists, it's something we actually train ourselves out of doing as we grow older. An artist too young to explain their own work is the perfect candidate for gallery owners to gush on about it's artistic qualities. Some of it is artistic, but it is not art. Art as a product requires more in terms of studies and forethought as well as a conscious use of the elements of design to create a desired effect.

The question always arises how much "help" did they receive from parents?

Art is usually bought as an investment when we're talking about the major galleries.

Oh My God... I saw the first couple works and was like, "interesting ... pained... poignant... who IS this artist, really? No way it's a friggan toddler!"

And then I saw that sublime composition in tan and hand. Blown a-way.

I am changed... transformed and transfigured.

What if I told you that all of this "art" is simply a way to launder money? Or better yet a way to dodge taxes?

It is the only reason any of this makes sense.

I'll probably get some (maybe a lot of) flack for saying it, but I think we've really lowered the bar on what can be called art these days. It's an insult to those who have spent years perfecting their skills and have natural talent.

One example I can think of is Rauschenberg's three canvases painted entirely white. You will never convince me that is art. "Well, it makes you think." Yes. It makes me think the art world is much like the tale of The Emperor's New Clothes.

So many these days say "Art can be anything that makes you feel something". Everything makes someone feel something so by that definition everything is art and everyone's an artist. If we held the same standards to other professions anyone could grab a dental drill and call themselves a dentist (or a dentiste).

Art has largely devolved into gimmicks celebrated by those who have lots of money and much less sense.

Reminds me of when they let elephants, horses or dogs paint. Which is to say it looks like shizz.


IDK, for a Elephant I don't think there all that bad are they? For sure better than your average Bear. The Elephant could probably give the kid some pointers.












I don't think Pablo would have been to thrilled about having that kids work compared to his, bit of a stretch if you ask me.

They've been trained to paint those, it isn't some form of abstraction. If you watch the videos of the animals painting you'll see their mahout guiding them through the process.

Hopefully someone was pulling on Baby Picasso's ear just like the elelphants to get her to paint.

It can not be healthy for the little guy.

That is my main concern, what other people do with their money, I could care less. Who am I to judge.

Imagine having all that privilege as a 2 year old.
