The artist painted them on the street to spread art to the masses, not to be ripped out of the wall and sold to highest paying bidder at auction. Sure, if it is your property, I guess you can do whatever you like with it, regardless of whether or not it violates the spirit of the piece. The success of auctions like these proliferates this type of behaviour, not only from property owners, but anyone looking to make a quick buck. For example, there is a guy right now in NYC going around ripping down Invaders and selling them on Craigslist.

Why exactly would someone see this as a positive, short of having a large Banksy or other high profile artist's work on the side of a building they own?

I'll admit it--I had to look it up. Apparently California already had something like this since 1976. It was called the "California Resale Royalty Act." It was struck down in 2012 for complex legal reasons. Now it appears it my become federal law.

For better or for worse CA often leads the country. Ack

Stanley Grinstein is dead at 86

My wife and I popped in there about 17 years ago and we were given a wonder tour for about 40 minutes. There were these 4 foot high Rauschenberg clear plastic window shade combines that we could have bought for about a thousand dollars. What are the worth now?!


Thanks for the post, Old Man.

Grinstein brought excellent art at affordable pricing to so many, and also helped L.A. become a wonderful and serious art market.

I'm sorry, you passed on anything from Rauschenberg? Razz

Thanks for sharing, Old Man.

Until this one piece of art, America was not seen as a serious art nation, yet this one piece started the tilt towards America becoming the art capital of the world that it is today.

This true breakthrough and seminal work is the most important American painting of all-time.
