The artnet news in fact – How shocking this was to me, when none of the artists, who I represent, made it in the list of the TOP 100 Living Artists.
And than I thought – well monetary value is not everything, maybe some of them are at least to be found in the Top 100 of most exhibited artists in the world, I mean, seriously…
Again – nothing!
Shortly before my eyes filled with tears, I’m not sure if due to the facts or the fine print – I found comfort.

Quote: “… But most of all, I’d like to see the abandonment of all such lists completely. I can’t help but think of the research a couple of years ago which revealed that most people spend seven to nine seconds looking at a work of art. That’s nowhere near as long as we spend reading lists of who sold where for what. So although it may sound archaic, maybe even a little trite, here’s a simple thought I’m just going to put out there: how’s about we stop looking so much at the numbers, and look just a little bit more deeply at the art?”
So!? What Do You Think?
Let me know!
