The Mona Lisa Curse

I just finished watching the twelve You Tube episodes of “The Mona Lisa Curse.” Robert Hughes, art critic, delivers interesting insight and punch into the culture of art, money and investment.

A few points:

1.  Do people go to “see” art or to really  “look” at it?

2.  Large auction prices, are they feeding off of artists?

3.  Is art only become an investment?  I remember a buyer telling me that he better get a return on his purchase of my art…

4.  Branding of the art and artist to become a commercial product.

Thank you Emily Clawson for the links:
