Genius and Commerce
I think the painting above is better than Guernica by Picasso.
A true genius in the 'art world' is rarely recognised by his own era, and are only recognised after they have gone.
Now the dealers will hang a price on his work and grow rich from it, when in life he lived in poverty.
That is the sickness of the art world - beauty must always bear a price tag before it is recognised as beautiful.
