    The sale of a single painting for more than $100 million is an occasion for reflection.

    For us ordinary mortals, it is time to remember that it only costs money to acquire art, not to appreciate it. an hour's quiet contemplation in a small corner of a great museum, in a commercial gallery, or in a private home is an hour without price. and we are fortunate to dwell in a city filled with art and people who make art.
