    Hm. Sounds like a true genius.

    The world is a poorer place for his demise.

    You neanderthals didn't know who Snow was? Make no mistake I had absolutely no respect for him as an artist, I just don't like when people die, especially leaving a young daughter behind.

    Fair enough. She'll probably be better off with her wealthy relatives though. A father on heroin isn't exactly a good influence.

    People change, unless they die. Ask her in ten years. It's nice to see you guys are gentlemen when it comes to the dead, unless you don't like them.

    I'm not sure why I should be gentlemanly about the death of a drug addict who leaves a daughter behind. I'm not glad he's dead, but it is most likely true that his daughter is better off without him; that's just a fact. Am I glad he's dead? No. But I don't owe any decorum on the internet to an irresponsible fool who is of zero relevance to me. Sorry.

    I doubt many children of deceased people, drug addicts or not would agree. Especially since coming clean is a distinct possibility.

    I am quite certain that they would not agree, you are correct. But that does not necessarily make them right.

    If my father had been a smack addict and died when I was 2, and I was then raised by my clean grandparents, I am sure I would also long for him and wish he were not dead and harbor some fantasies that he might have gone straight and we could have had a jolly old time together. However, I would also likely not have a full appreciation for the life I might have had bouncing from drug house to drug house or being malnourished or lacking stability, or the fact that I might have turned to a life of abuse and crime myself.

    It's not that it's a certainty Mr. Snow's child is better off today, but it is a distinct possibility that she is, regardless of how an adult young Miss Snow might choose to digest her grief and longing.

    Edit: Anyways, I have had my sport and jesting with Mr. Snow, and his death is, of course, like any premature one, a tragedy. I would argue that his life was one as well. May he RIP, regardless of my inappropriate jibes and appropriate opprobrium at his demise.

    Found this today. [​IMG] Aldo Luongo print. Any info on the kind of print? Serigraph perhaps?

    I am interested in acquiring some works by modern masters, particularly Joan Miro and Alexander Calder. Because I don't have a spare million lying around the house, I am looking at lithographs. Is a pencil signature worth paying a premium? What other considerations should I keep in mind?
