Is That a Picasso on Your Fridge?
SEPARATING FINGER-PAINTED GENIUS FROM CRAYON-DOODLED CRAPKids create them. Parents submit them. An art critic reviews them. And dont think for one second he doesnt know exactly what hes talking about! With characteristically overblown, egotistical, WTF critiques, this book hilariously deconstructs works of childrens art as if they were the newest installations at a modern art museum.Age cant constrain greatness. Mozart composed at five. Picasso was painting at seven. If one doubts that young children reveal signs of genius every time they touch crayon to paper, just ask any parent about the artwork on their refrigerator door. But regular people dont understand art, so it is impossible for them to see the difference between the work of an idiot savant and a kid who's just an idiot.
