Derdriu, I am a big fan of contemporary art.

KatieM2, Thank you for the images and information on Cindy Sherman. She's already beat that workaholic of a Rembrandt out in numbers of self-portraits. Do you know if her digital and pre-digital camera depictions do equally well in the art market or if one is considered more compelling and lucrative than the other?

I love the idea of her art. I love the way she did it. And I surely love Cindy Sherman. I have heard the name, but never had the opportunity to investigate her art. Now I regret it. But luckily, you did excellent job on presenting Cindy Sherman to your readers.
