“Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.” Al Capp
Alfred Gerald Caplin (September 28, 1909 – November 5, 1979), better known as Al Capp, was an American cartoonist and humorist best known for the satirical comic strip Li’l Abner.
Hah! that made me laugh
I must confess that I was tempted to illustrate this quote with a painting by Rothko, but I know some people appreciate his work even if I don’t.
well I must now confess I find the his tragic story intriguing and his paintings are so huge that when i saw them I did quite like it. Although I don’t know if I’d like it if I didn’t know his tragic life story.
Oh, my, I have not thought of Al Capp and Lil Abner in years but I remember the originals.
Must be your age! 😉
