It’s stupid, something a child would like. Chinese people have no taste. French people have the best taste, followed by Russians, and then the other Europeans…Americans are after that.

Excerpt from this Letter from China story from The New Yorker from, like, a month ago. I’ve been meaning to blog this for ages, but I accidentally left my copy of the mag in LA, and I just got around to looking up the quote. Related image above credited to my friend Brendan Lott, whose paintings, based on photos he finds online, are outsourced to Chinese painters similar to the one quoted above.
