Before, I didn’t understand rich people’s obsession with art. I used to think that they didn’t have anywhere else to spend their money. Or that buying expensive art is a status symbol like buying a million dollar super car.
But now I have a different interpretation.
Buying art is about surrounding yourself with beauty.
This is how one develops their taste. The more beautiful things you are surrounded by (and the more beautiful things you consume mentally) the better your taste gets.
