Grumble Grumble, Complain Complain


Richard Cork writes some drivel in the New Statesman about contemporary art.

He tries to make some comparison between art in 1906, and art in 2006, and his main point is that art today is bad. He writes 'Does anyone else share my sense of disappointment about the unfocused character of art today?' But then he shoots himself in the foot, and then places it in his mouth when he continues to write 'After all, even Picasso was so perturbed by his friends' hostile reaction to Les Demoiselles that he left the unfinished canvas rolled up in his studio.'

How many unfinished canvases are still hanging out rolled up in studios around the world today? Personally I am still looking for a Jacques Doucet, and I strongly suggest that Mr. Cork wait until 2037 before complaining that art made in 2006 doesn't stand up to Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.
