RKS Literature: Passage of the Day: Prostitution and Art Theft

“Beautiful art, like beautiful women, provokes desire. A desire to possess and be possessed, a yearning to have created, a sense of peace and majesty, to hold this sublime proof of the existence of God, who must be great indeed to have created a thing of such beauty. In this manner, if you’ll forgive the analogy, the patron is soliciting a prostitute, the beautiful whore is a work of art, and the thieves who provide her, the pimps.”

Noah Carney “The Art Thief” 2007 Washington Square Press
