About the feedback you received on auctions from Marc, I think it’s fascinating that he starts out with “tremendous controversy about the ‘true’ value of these paintings” with the word true in quotes, a quotation mark usage I agree with, but then goes on to say “everything from obscure low-value art, up to Picasso works” without acknowledging that the worth of a Picasso is just as much a “true” value, arbitrary and determined solely by how much a buyer is willing to pay, as that of so-called “low-value art,” yet he places no quotation marks around the phrase low-value art. It’s fascinating because he probably did this unconsciously, not aware of the glaring contradiction.

Good day,
