Yes, well, this applies to a lot of things. Total fucking moronitude is no respecter of class or persons.
Maybe not. But I don't think he suffers foos gladly, either.
While I still think it is slightly tacky to brag about how much you paid for them, I can see how provenance might be something you would want to consider.
It's not that it cannot point to or evoke what a person might be interested in but it certainly isn't foolproof (hey I picked this at Sotheby's cause it matched the carpet, yeah it was painted by Johnson Pollock or whatever, he's an artiste
!) and, more importantly, I really don't place having a nice place at the same level as being cognisant in modern art or whatever, it's worth more points than a mastery of Klingon or a deep knowledge of Swiss watches but that's about it.
