    Well, “Scientology” WAS created by an insane, psychotic Science Fiction writer, so it does kinda make sense…

    all religions are insane. they have crazy practices and rituals. why must i stand up and sit down every time the priest raises and lowers his hands? why must i touch water and make the sign of the cross? and, the crazy dietary restrictions. not to mention, the fear of science and medicine. plus, their doctrine that everything will be provided in the afterlife, so their members shouldn’t have retirement accounts, insurance, savings accounts, etc…

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here. Smaller enlargement can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    Alain Chartier (link shows his Wikipedia page, Google translated French Wikipedia page is longer) sold for $441,438 (non-inflation-adjusted), 11/28/01, and is privately owned.

    No, the artist didn’t come back from the grave and paint it 86 years after his death. It is shown, with a different coloration image, and described by its auction page (see LOT NOTES).

    Another different coloration image can be found here. The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection.

    Tenth, of the 13 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    For reasons known only to Mr. Melcher, it is listed as MASTERPIECE #1, even though it appeared over a year after he started his blog — the first one there is MASTERPIECE #3.

    Tired of art snobs and their stuffy old museums? So was Steve Melcher, so he created That Is Priceless —

    @Art Vandalay


    What I found odd was the masterpiece number, not that he created his blog. Perhaps he had since removed the first two entries and decided to pop in #1 after #55, which followed #280, which followed #299, which followed #94, …, a non-sequential sequence.

    For all I know, it really is the first one he ever posted there, and he just moved it to a later date. #55 is missing from 2009 as well. #54 was posted 12/7/09 and #56 on 12/9/09 (12/8/09 missing), when he pretty much posted a daily blog entry.

    After rethinking it, I probably shouldn’t have mentioned it in the first place.
