PHILIP TOYNBEE
Art critic
The notion is that the principal purpose of art is to shock and startle, and that if an artefact succeeds in doing this it has proved itself to be a work of art. Yet nothing is easier than to be shocking, and to shock successfully may well show nothing but an impoverished ability to communicate. - Philip Toynbee, Views on nudes by Bill Jay , ISBN: 0240507312 , Page: 81-82
