Yes, that one works, thanks.

It sucks some art is gone forever, but it really isn't something I am going to lose sleep over personally.

You sir, are no artist.

You know that feeling you get when you have an art piece and you think it looks good?

Then the next morning you think it looks bad?

Imagine, rather than thinking it looks either way NOT BEING ABLE TO DECIDE HOW IT LOOKS. That is the benefit which has been robbed from humanity. (any one individual may be able to decide what it looks like, but this will change over time with society and populations.)

Such a thing is invaluable for indoctrination of finer things for future generations.

There is more to "entertainment" that adds more to a persons overall mental structure than Game of Thrones, and violent pornography.

But I guess the time of the polymath and apprentice have passed.

Losing the original sucks, but we don't live in the dark ages here. We have printing presses that can print a copy on canvas, no? Maybe I just don't put much stock on some old paintings. A lot of old paintings I don't find to be very good, not my taste I guess. To each their own, I prefer contemporary art myself.

While I agree that Picasso's paintings weren't really my thing you can't say having a photocopy is the same thing as the actual canvas.

When you study brush strokes/style you need to be look at the actual painting. While I am a businesswoman and no artist I can also appreciate that there is a huge field dedicated to studying artistic styles and art history. Studying a sculpture and studying a picture of a sculpture are two different things entirely, same with paintings.

While I don't personally care for Picasso, he made a huge impact on artists and culture. Having a painting of his incinerated is just depressing. Gone forever.

I would imagine there was a Roman who didn't think the burning of the library of Alexandria was a big deal.Don't get me started about what the Jesuits did to the South American's tablets in the name of their faith.


I suppose this is what now passes for values these days.

And I'll bet that would be the most expensive fire she has EVER lit!

I agree. I look at them and they look good and all but I wouldnt call it a national tresure! You know what would be a national tresure? Free health care for people who have aids and cancer.

They are just paint on canvas. Thats it.

Better yet, sell them to fund aids and cancer. Then just keep selling them, so the money circulates though the medical industry. Instead of hording them away, so you can have "Class".
