People who have way too much money ...
That includes Bezos of Amazon with 191 BILLION IN ASSETS. While I'm a capitalist, that amount of money is just obscene if you don't do some real good with it. Then you have Facebook Suckerburg and the Twitter bearded idiot and Gates. The more money they make the more power they want.
They could all live their lavish lifestyles on a couple Billion and do some real good with the rest.
the only good thing is the seller and his or her relatives will probably spread that money around more than the buyer would have
i know what i’d do with that money
i’d deal with this country’s enemies
I guess I'm just not sophisticated enough.
This was me. I’m very happy with my purchase.
The emperor has no clothes.
Picasso himself said that most of what he made was garbage.
One of the largest ranches in Montana just sold for 136 million.
Just think of al the walking you could do on that.
Instead of staring at a bad painting.
If I saw that at a garage sale for ten bucks, I might consider buying it to salvage the frame. Hang it up in my home? Never!
It ain’t a Botticelli...nose and thighs are too big...
After looking at a view of the painting, I’d have to say that Picasso was right...save your money. A grade school kid could do as well. The difference would be that his name wasn’t Picasso. I guess a high-rated(but otherwise worthless)painting is what some other sucker will pay for it. Looking at the situation in an honest manner...if this painting were destroyed what would the world be missing out on?
He foresaw the figure of the average American woman .
I would not pay $2.00 for that thing. It is hideous! It looks like a cartoon. I would not hang it in my house. Picasso must be laughing looking back at how gullible people can be.
The prolific Picasso bought utility-grade oil paint in 55 gallon drums and printed the world's very first cryptocurrency. Think of it that way.
I disagree. It looks just like something I did in Kindergarten, and my mommy hung it on her refrigerator for years and years. She said it was beautiful. So there.
