    With all due respect- do you expect no more art to be created? The last Supper was modern art the day it was completed.

    "Serious art is where difficult, complex questions get made urgent and human and real; and the political climate in the USA right now is so ugly, unreflective, selfish, jingoistic, and materialistic that serious art has probably never been needed more." David Foster Wallace

    Just another circle jerk of right wingers hating, this time art is their target. What a bunch of snowflakes. I wonder if they liked Trump's portrait paid for by his dishonest foundation. Trump sure knows how to play his fans. Follow along boys and girls. LOL

    This is the portrait of Donald Trump that his charity bought for $20,000

    $20,000 for charity is a far cry from $10,400,000 to hang on a wall.

    /----/ In about 100 years ask your great grand kids. They will probably pay a hefty price to see it in a museum.

    No doubt, because civilization is imploding. They'll probably be paying to see people fight to the death in an arena too.

    Please learn what modern art is.
    And it's not because it was created in your lifetime.

    Modern art has value!

    It proves, beyond all doubt, the adage about fools and their money.

    You missed my point weatherboy. Many artist are not recognized as great until many years after their death, generations later. The cliche “starving artist” is a cliche for a reason.
