    Earliest Bali Painting by Arie Smit Sold

    That's all? Old Mr Smits should be worth a lot more than that. ...And what's all this rubbish about guilt and sales and profit? Why should artists not make money? They should, and lots of it. Look at all the real estate vultures and sundry finance grease balls raking it in. There is also...
