Talkin' about guff, here's some dubious portraits o' the queen:
by ARTIST George Condo
<<<A spokesman for Tate Modern, which was opened by the Queen in May 2000, said the portrait would be on show for several months, adding: 'George Condo is a well-respected artist and this is an imaginary portrait. Lots of works of contemporary art are done in this way.'
But Brendan Kelly of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters described it as 'embarrassingly bad'. 'When you paint a portrait of anybody you should create a legend,' he said. 'This will just create a fuss.'>>>
<<< Stern: by Lucien Freud>>>
<<<Psychedelic: by Andy Warhol>>>
I wonder what aliens would think?
But seriously, what would you think of humans if you were told that these were some of the best likenesses? of one of their highest-ranking individuals?
Personally I'd say I don't like the look of these much but I'd like to meet the one who's smokin' the er, cigarette.
