Ellsworth Kelly: Con man

Guess what he called this "painting"?

With all due respect to the recently departed Ellsworth Kelly, who died last month, "art" like the above (Black) is crap. There's a lot more where that came from! How much respect as an artist is his due? Instead, he was a first-rate con man, like this guy.

I blogged about this cultural vandalism when it happened last year. Not surprisingly, the callow jerk, after trashing an important American publication, now wants to dump it (A Year After Mass Staff Exodus, Chris Hughes Is Selling The New Republic). I still get it in the mail as my subscription runs out, but, since there's little of interest to read, it goes quickly in the recycling bin.
