The old masters are famous for having legendary abilities, so I don't think a schmuck like Hockney is going to actually make a dent in that great reputation.

I hope you are right, but if you consider that the bad guys can make sure that every high school and college kid will be introduced to art history with the first lesson being that the Old Masters couldn't draw or paint realistic pictures without a camera obscura, some pretty oddball "urban legends" will become the orthodoxy.
