This story below made me think of this quote from the art critic Clement Greenburg..
“In visual arts, prodigies don’t count. In music and literature, yes, but not in art.”
Child art prodigy wows New York
“A four-year-old girl is wowing the New York art world with paintings that are drawing comparisons with Jackson Pollock and Wassily Kandinsky.
Marla Olmstead, from Binghamton, in New York state, has been painting since just before she was two years old.
Using brushes, spatulas, her fingers and even ketchup bottles, she is creating canvases of six by six foot.
The prodigy has already sold about 25 paintings, raising $40,000 (£22,000) and a new exhibition opens on Friday.”
