ACE To Sell?

Arts Council England has been buying up bad British art, such as Francis Bacon's Head VI (1949), since it was founded in 1946. It has wasted vast sums of taxpayers' money buying thousands of ghastly pieces of modern and contemporary art, about a third of which it lends out to galleries in a given year. Thanks to Government's major cut in ACE's funding, ACE is now considering selling some of its tripe to buy new works and continue to subsidise third-rate British artists. Bacon's rubbish should fetch a good price.
