I just finished reading a horrible story in the paper. Apparently a Romanian woman's son stole a number of works of art from a museum in Rotterdam, paintings and drawings by Matisse, Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, Lucian Freud and more. Convinced that if the paintings no longer existed, her son could not be prosecuted, the woman burned them all in the stove.
I have been so guilty of burning my hypothetical art. It's time I stopped.
