Kiss of Depreciation

So who is Rindy Sam? She is the young woman who improved Cy Twombly's portfolio with a smear of lipstick.

A painting with nothing but white paint is a pretty sorry excuse for art. Any dimwit that would buy such a pretentious piece of tripe deserves to loose their $2,878,000 investment to a kiss.

I have a degree in fine art, and I try to be open minded about all types of art...but a canvas covered in nothing but white paint (and getting paid for it?)? GIVE ME A BREAK.

I have to agree with you; calling a blank canvas a work of art is bullshit. The "artist" couldn't think of anything, so he sold the canvas "as-is".
I ought to send in a pile of blank paper to a publishing company and get it published as a novel. I'll bet it wouldn't sell for $2,878,000...

A fool and his money are soon parted, are they not?

As Benny Hill so brilliantly stated, "what a road of clap!"

$2.8 million?

Gimme a break: It's not as if the artist couldn't "make" the patron another "painting."

I've got another copy of the painting right here. He can have it for free if he wants it.
