The Blue Donkey








The Blue Donkey




Let them eat their fill of their square pears on their
triangular tables! Marc Chagall




Hey! Marc what's up with that latest blue donkey painting of
yours?



How come it's not flying? And what's that dangling between
its hind legs?



Are you testing the limits of the Parisian art intellectual
milieu?



No! Sasha it's just that I never learned how to paint
academically.



Well, Marc that's pretty apparent here but it has maybe
nothing to do



with your childish drawings. You must give it proper intellectual
reasons.



Kandinski did and look how far he propelled.



Da, Sasha, why don't you work out a philosophy for my art.



You're so good at cerebral bullshit!



OK, Marc. Considering the content of your many paintings I
suggest



we take the Freudian slant. You have all the virginal stuff
and flying angels



with horned beasts peering from every corner. I bet Freud
will jump



on the bandwagon.



Well, Sasha, as usual your approach is brilliant but with
that slant



you're making me a degenerate.



Niet, Marc, it's all about money. Just look at what Picasso
is getting



away with. All your art has familiar renditions. Yeah, a bit
upside down



and flying like on LSD. So, do you want to be rich and
famous or a poor



nameless wannabe?
