Have you ever discovered great art in an embarrassing way? Today I became enamored with a work by Picasso (The Two Saltimbanques [Harlequin and his Companion], 1901) when a co-worker gave me a 2x4 in. sticker of it. The only other thing I could compare this to would be the few times I've heard a song to an Apple or shampoo commercial and was left google-ing for it. Could one have a legitimate "moment" of artistic discovery, self reflection, or even sublimity with what is essentially an artwork (at the very least) thrice removed from its original source?
Unfortunatly, today I think I did...
'Tis the world we now live in, I suppose.
