When Was the Last?

So going off a little bit of what I talked about before about art college degrees becoming less and less valuable here in America, I was really starting to think about when the last very famous artist came around and I honestly could not think of one.

I kind of feel like the days of actual artists who create masterpieces and people come from all around the world to see it is over. I really don’t know why that is and I think that there are generally more artists around today than their ever has been, but the chances of them being noticed and admired from other parts of the world is absolutely slim to none.

What I mean is that there are pieces across the globe like the Mona Lisa and things like that are from famous artists that everyone has at least heard of. I cannot even think of the latest artists who have created pieces that are comparable to the most famous pieces in the world and they will never get the recognition that the most famous artists have gotten.

I wonder if this has to do with the fact that most famous artists are long gone but this would be hard for me to say whether or not this is the main reason for their fame because I was obviously not around when they were alive. Maybe once these incredible talented artists are dead and gone they will get the recognition they deserve.

That was kind of a morbid and depressing through to end on now wasn’t it?
