Madness… Ending?

While generally not one to look for silver linings, the pandemic is putting a pinch on art museums, who have accordingly begun selling off paintings in their permanent collections in order to stay alive.

Every museum selling off art to stay alive has started with their 20th century garbage. I think we are ready to see the bottom fall out of the abstract expressionist market over the next 20 years, which means universities might go back to teaching kids how to be David or Corot as opposed to Damien Hirst.
