Hmm …

… David Hockney: 'Abstraction in art has run its course'. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Giacometti described abstraction as “the art of the handkerchief”. And that’s what the illustration looked like to me, nothing more… Why was abstraction necessary? I think it was. Its job was to take away the shadows that had dominated European art for centuries. It was only European art that used them.
