Rothwell’s Gauntlet

If you haven’t seen the Weekend Australian yet with Nicholas Rothwell’s blistering article, “Scams in the Desert,” you’ll probably want to check it out soon.It’s a topic I sometimes feel I’ve said too much about already, the sad story of the treatment some artists receive at the hands of unscrupulous dealers. Without naming names, Rothwell certainly hasn’t pulled many punches. It’s a challenging piece of writing, not in the least because he goes beyond the dealers to implicate buyers as well. 

And it’s not something I’m prepared to comment on quickly. Have a look. I’ll no doubt return with my reaction after a few more readings and a lot more reflection.
