The secondary problem is that Pollard knows this. If he is writing as an arts correspondent for the BBC, he must know enough recent art history to know the lines of descent in the 20th century.
This article by Mr. Pollard is just one sample among many decades of bald, transparent, and hamhanded agitprop. Notice that Mr. Pollard is not writing as a representative of a gallery or any other private interest. No, he is writing as a BBC correspondent. The BBC is state-sponsored, which makes his article state-sponsored propaganda for a private market. He has turned the truth on its head for some hidden interest, probably a gallery.
On one recent occasion, as example, the author Laurence Pollard published on February 20, 2009, an article of the title "Back to the Futurists," in which he claimed that a group opposing the Turner Prize was connected historically to the Futurists.
This Petitioner suspects it would be quite easy to show that the BBC arts section has been infiltrated by private interests, and that authors such as Laurence Pollard are being prompted and paid by promoters of the Turner Prize and/or by private London galleries such as Saatchi. This is of public concern and the concern of Parliament for many reasons, not the least of which is that it is contrary to the charter of the BBC to be publishing false information, especially false information to benefit a private interest.
A British friend, after reading this, feared I might be opening myself up to a libel suit by the BBC, Pollard, or Saatchi, for going public with such an accusation.
