Comment is free The Banksy mural affair: art market or art racket?

Move along there. Nothing criminal going on here. How the rich attempt to gain prestige and tax refunds by dabbling in art and how the dealers play both ends against the middle. Not really surprising stuff gets stolen, eh? I suppose graffiti is mysteriously disappearing all over Chicago as you read this...Will it be tax-deductible to buy a building with a Bansy on the wall soon? "I was preserving it for the nation. Oops...it fell down..."
