Praises to the Chairman

From Mark Bradford Strutt

Published before 2005


Dear Fred,

I see now that for the world of art you probably have a much higher calling than I in the greater scheme of things.

I just now, for the first time, read your Philosophy letter and you could have taken some words right out of my mouth, i.e., " The Emperor Has No Clothes ". Yes I myself have used this description many times about the bad art of some poor soul in some public gallery of snobbery.

Well Fred your philosophy statement was just too good .

In fact at times, tears could come. It is so close to being perfect that any kind of critique would be nit-picking. As a full time professional artist and realist painter, I can't give you thanks enough for what you said in it.

I wish you more than the best in your future endeavors.
