“Money is the opposite of art… Art is the expression of ideas– some of them very foresighted– of lofty ideals, of political insights, and of deep-felt emotions. As such, it should not be price-tagged.”
Baroness Marion Lambert the millionaire art collector from Geneva, who may well be right in this case but is apparently oblivious to irony and to cognitive dissonance. Maybe she just means she never has to bother looking at the price of anything. From the book Collecting Contemporary Art, published by Taschen.
