George Condo is a gifted painter who you could say specializes in making truly awful works that people just love. Many of these pictures are currently gathered together at the New Museum. The two-floor installation boasts an entire wall of portraits of bug-eyed, buck-toothed cartoon characters, which everyone is saying are like Old Masters. People find this amusing, and that seems to be enough.
