  1. It is interesting to see “Christina’s World” amidst the more modernist artworks on your list but not altogether surprising. People like the work of Andrew Wyeth. The only people appearing to dislike Wyeth and his work are major art critics, who rarely can do anything other than spew resentment at Wyeth’s popularity and cast aspersions on the artist himself. (Likening some artist’s work to Wyeth’s is comparable to an epithet.) Wyeth reflects the innate powerlessness of critics to influence taste.

  2. The cynic in me says the Charles Ray piece made the list thanks to people googling for porn.
