The 20th Century Artistic Famine

I have a rule that I will never buy paintings that I could have painted better myself. That rules out virtually all modern art. The last great painter in my view was John Singer Sargent, who died in 1925. After that, the 20th century was a dismal century in the history of art. When future generations look back on it, they’ll think we were all mad.
