Van Gogh & the Credit Crunch

One of the little FC Pro-Lifers was telling me today all about Van Gogh.

After some banter about his ear and what a "nutter" he must've been we talked through how the artist hadn't sold any pictures during his lifetime.

I told the FC sprog that this was in stark contrast to today when his pictures are worth so much.

"I know," I was told quite firmly, "his paintings are worth pounds. Not pennies mind! Pounds."

Seems the credit crunch is really biting.

Does the art world know?
