Picasso and the 'absurd' price

Below is a quote from Jonathan Jones, writing in the Guradian on the sale of Picasso's Les Femmes d'Alger (Version O). The painting was sold in 11 minutes for £114m.

Art collectors are fools who can be manipulated to spend fortunes with the same superficial curisosity about fashionable stuff that makes most of us buy a Bowie comeback album or go to see a film everyone's talking about. It's as trivial as that.
