Advertisers shun modern art

Whoops! Sorry, Google. I see the paid-for advertisements have disappeared from my blog, replaced by a public service announcement. And all because I wrote an article (below) on Marcel Duchamp's Fountain!
I guess the advertisers feel that Duchamp's distasteful humour has no place on a decent art website. I tend to agree. I certainly wouldn't insult the discerning viewer by putting a graphic of Fountain on this site. I just thought the attack newsworthy. Anyway, so much for those art critics who voted it the most influential modern art work of all time! I'll shortly be posting a new combination graphic of Michelangelo's David. What a contrast! True art. That'll bring the advertisers back.
