'Art is carefully reviewed and critically monitored..'
But is it though? It seems to me that contemporary British artists work very closely with a small group of dealers and collectors who have an interest in ensuring prices stay high. I do not call any art degenerate, that's a word that has been levelled by some very questionable people. However, I wonder whether Hirst's spin pictures will enjoy the longevity of Caravaggio or Vermeer or any of hundreds of artists whose work defies time or fashion.
