|Nude Descending a Staircase,|
Saturday, September 4, 2010
Every artist dreams of creating a masterpiece that will go down in history as some kind of ground-breaking, earth-moving, watershed work of art. (Sounds downright geological, doesn't it?) It happens every few years, though, sad to say, such a work today isn't likely to involve paint on canvas. The medium is more likely to be film, television, or some computer game (like Pac-Man, perhaps).
Nonetheless, the painting sold. Today it can be seen in the Philadelphia Museum of Art
