Dear Dr. Metablog - You're right on the mark about contemporary art - it isn't. No beauty, no trace of feeling or wit or, as you say, craftsmanship. This is why I haven't listened to radio music for years - the same crap for the ears as for the eyes. I don't want a reversion to figurative art - I'm a big fan of Jackson Pollack - but how Litchenstein and Whorhol got to the gods they are now I'll never understand. Ever read John D. McDonald's Travis Magee series? The protagonist in one novel asks an artist to simply draw a cow, and the artist can't and admits she's caught dead to rights.
