"Le Reve" by Pablo Picasso
Now freed from the shackles of realism painters move towards abstraction in many different ways. Painters have moved from being recorders of history to makers of history. In over 30,000 years of making art most of the significant developments have come in the last 100 years. Usually hated at first, all new movements in art are eventually accepted and loved. You want some love? This whimsical painting originally sold for $7,000 in 1941. The next time it traded in 2001 the price tag was $60,000,000. Now that’s love!
