    I read enough John Richardson. He is as pious about Picasso as a banker is about his gold reserves.
    Poetry and painting are fundamentally difficult. Poetry is essentially without pecuniary value. Art can be more valuable than gold or platinum.

    (A day before the passing of John Richardson, there was a lively discussion on FB on Picasso)
