Reader comment on item: Beauty and Nausea in Venice

Oh, but Mr Pipes, its SOOOOO much work to produce a great painting or ect. We, as artists, would just as soon screw around with making junk look "intellectual" and "stimulating". Its much less onerous, and if you do drugs at the same time its a real trip. Who needs beauty?
