Turner Prize shortlist

Click the title link to read the twaddle. Coxsoft Art wouldn't sully your pixels with anything selected for the Turner Prize, which has become a national joke, annual proof that the Art Establishment remains determined to expunge from our minds any borne notion that art has anything to do with aesthetics. Hence this Anti Art fest with big money awaiting the worst artist. Even BBC newsreaders have trouble keeping a straight face when reporting this rubbish.
So what's a magnificent watercolour of Lake Lucerne doing on a blog about the Turner Prize? It's a publicity photo (copyright © Christie's Images Ltd) for a forthcoming Christie's auction, British Art on Paper, on 5 June 2006. The artist is J.M.W. Turner! His corpse would writhe in shame if it knew that the name Turner has been hijacked by the British Anti Art Brigade.

Exactly.
If I come across a "nice" nude Chinese Emperor, I must write a blog on the subject.
