MUST BAD PAINTING BE GOOD?
by Charlie Finch
When I read that Miami collector Craig Robins actually owned 29 works by Marlene Dumas
and was initiating legal action alleging that he was prevented from buying another Dumas because he had actually dared to sell one, I thought, "Please, Mr. Robins, do yourself a favor and dump all 29 on the market now." Thus, Craig would achieve his revenge against his perceived persecutors by deflating the market of a truly vague and lazy painter -- a true public service.
