'Renoir sucks at painting'

It’s getting hotter. Recent action near The Museum Of Fine Arts in Boston makes me look forward to something like ‘Mozart is a fraud’, ‘Joyce can’t write to save his life’ and ‘William Blake is a wanker’. Possibilities are endless. 

Seriously, you have to admire those people. They are romantics. Idiots, too, but it’s nice to have them around. I’m all for questioning the preconceived notions, it’s just that you have to have some taste, too. And campaigning against art is always bad taste, there’s no getting around it.
