What is Art? Ever since the nineteenth century the question has been posed incessantly to the artist, to the museum director, and to the enthusiast alike. In reality I do not believe it is legitimate to seriously define Art other than in the light of one constant factor—namely the transformation of Art into merchandise. In our time this process has accelerated to the point at which artistic and commercial values are superimposed.
