A glimpse into Jeff Koon's Factory, by The Observer's Gaby Wood. If you are a artist, and you are having a bad day, skip it... it will push you over the edge. But you can at least have a chuckle over this tidbit:
"When art critic David Sylvester interviewed Koons in 2000, and asked him about his recent methods of production, he began by comparing his factory to that of Raphael and Rubens. But Sylvester pointed out that unlike Raphael or Rubens, Koons did not actually do any of the painting. Koons replied that he wanted to 'grow as much as possible as an artist, instead of being tied down in the execution of the work.' "
