Painted on a wall on the Bay of Fundy, she drowns and reemerges daily with the tides

My wife knows the private equity guys who seeded banksy. They made a killing.

I don't even know. I know the show in Toronto is unauthorized. It's a bunch of private collectors showing stuff and then when it's over they take their stuff back and that's it.

But I don't know shit about shit.

It's not just Picasso and Van Gogh and Pollock. Even Modigliani is in on the mega-bucks art.

157 mil for this:

So season 2 of Genius which was about Picasso is done.

Did you know he was once accused of stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre? True story. He didn't do it though.

Mainly what I learned is, he did a lot of paintings which are now worth a lot of money, and he liked getting laid.

Apparently he was very jealous of Matisse in his struggling years while he was still trying to make a name for himself.

But he was chasing women all over the place, looking to get laid. That never changed.

Very into pussay, him.
