Artists Really, Really Don’t Want Their Work On Ivanka Trump’s Walls

SHARE
The left's reaction to Trump promises four years of fun, fun, fun. 

The world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel, as Horace Walpole said.

For example, Huffington Post informs us that some artists who sold their paintings to Ivanka Trump now say they don’t want their work on Ivanka’s walls, but they don't offer to buy it back.

Theirs is not a new dilemma of course. Millais was very upset when Pears the soap manufacturers bought 'Bubbles' and used it as an advert but there was nothing he could do.

It's a terrible painting anyway. Someone said that had Ruskin's marriage to Effie Gray been consummated he'd have written Bubbles.

If I were Ivanka I'd bring out a book illustrating her entire collection and give the proceeds to a charity for young artists in deprived inner cities.

  1. I am not sure Ivanka is thinking about the inner city, except possibly midtown Manhattan.
