Resident contrarian, Breakerbaker offers a lesson on race and art history, pinged to our discussion yesterday of Salome:
I looked at the Picasso, and wasn't really offended. But maybe I would be, if I knew more.
UPDATE: It's worth mentioning that highlighting racism--or any other -ism--in someone's work, isn't the same as saying that their art sucks. I think we'd lose a lot of art if started disqualifying stuff based on quotient of noxious ideas. I don't think Breaker was calling for anyone's head.
