Art then vs. art now Read 3 comments Nice post! Thank you! Well, the difference is no sooo big! May be we shouldn’t forget – In the past pressure on an artist was higher. If the king did’nt like his portrait the painter got beheaded or banished. True, maybe we should start beheading some modern artists! 😉 Leave a Reply to Arthur Barbato (@arthurbarbato) Cancel replyCommentName Email Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
