4741 The reason Art is so expensive is it is a tool for tax evasion
Rich people buy art at charity auctions for lower then it's appraised value.

let it 'appriciate' for a while and get it reapraised

Then they donate it to a charity for auction.

They then get to mark that as a charitable contribution which means they can off set it against their tax, and they get the value it was appraised at not the auction price.

Art is bought by next rich person at charity aution for 'less than it is worth'.

REPEAT.

Art is usually unique so they can say it is priced whatever they want even if it is a scribble as long as it has an artist name they have massaged to mean something it can have a multi million price tag.

Pic related this painting is worth 300 million and I don't think it is purely because someone likes it that much.

This isn't true for all art but otherwise yes it's true. I thought this was common knowledge now? I swear it was in the news ages back.

Was it? I had one of those eureka moments and this is what I came up with.

That's a gross and philistinic over-simplification. Fine art isn't just a tax evasion scheme, it's also very useful for money laundering and insurance fraud.

I had one of those when I realised the Alpha Legion were loyalists after all.

I've been working my way through the books. I must have gone through about 20 of them in the past 6 months during quiet times at work.

I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of art or any real understanding of what makes it valuable. I can at least tell the difference between a Kandinsky and a Gauguin. But I actually really like the OP picture.

I don't have anything else to add I suppose. Apart from that my phone suggested 'Picard' before it suggested 'picture' which made me smile.

OP here. To clarify I am no philistine. I can appreciate the value of an abstract piece of art even if it isnt to my taste. My issue is with its price and what that means its economic function is, not its ascetic one.

Last time I checked the cannon which would be close to 15 years ago nearly all of the Traitor primarks are portrayed as loyalists who through dramatic irony the imperium pushed away rather than expressly turning their backs.

It's probably an autocorrect mistake but it's "canon" not "cannon".

They've spent those last fifteen years turning the back story of the primarchs into a power armoured soap opera. It's essentialy devolved into "my space dad's harder than your space dad".

You people don't even know the meaning of the word "heresy", you probably don't even realise the Custodes are Eldar!

For one, a write-off reduces your taxable income, not the final bill.
