{October 17, 2009}   In which Dave gets more kudos

gerhard richter I meant to mention this with my first post this morning, Dave, but I have to hand it to ya, that was genius to fish up the awful awful, self-righteous hatchet job TNR did on Gerhard Richter.  That just about sums up everything that’s wrong with the Arts commentary in the New Republic — that if a painter isn’t trying to be either Edward Hopper or Marc Chagall, he’s clearly just trying to put one over on the public while selling out to the moneyed and trendy New York art scene.

Anyway, I’m thinking of finally not renewing my subscription to TNR.  I dunno, it’s just gotten so Jewish lately.
