I too love looking at beautiful art, and have many Monet prints in my house, from calenders. They beautify the hall-way or the bedroom, and are good on the back of doors, to provide some impression of the fleeting life, brush strokes of genius which are more life-like than life!
When I see a print of Vatriano's works on somebody's wall, I immediately carry an impression of elegance in the owner's heart. Art is like that, it gives a fleeting impression of what the owner must have thought when buying it. I have seen people so ecstatic when they've bought a quality painting from an art gallery in Bond Street and carry it to their sedan, one can almost imagine them being kissed by a God, or a Muse at least. The artist was kissed by the Muse, and that is vicariously conveyed to the one who acquires the work.
Recently, art works seem to have been breaking records, thus Edvard Munch's Scream at $100 million plus delighted admirers of the Norwegian master.
But today I am a bit shocked, when I saw a painting of three ice lolly parts displayed as three rectangles and called Red, Orange and Yellow or some such name. Bloomberg reporter Katya Kascazina was very enthusiastic about the painting, but nearly $90 million? It is certainly a record.
