I forget how I got to this little book (112 pages) but I had the most fun you legally reading the Tom Wolfe deconstructing the snobbery behind Modern Art. In modern blog terms, he fisks the living daylights of of sacred “artiste” crowds with the snark of the gods.
“First you do everything possible to make sure your world is antibourgeois, that it defies bourgeois tastes, that it mystifies the mob, the public, that it outdistances the insensible middle-class multitudes by light-years of subtlety and intellect—and then, having succeeded admirably, you ask with a sense of See-what-I-mean? outrage: look, they don’t even buy our products! (Usually referred to as “quality art.”)”
― Tom Wolfe, The Painted Word
It is glorious.
