In “The Painted Word” Tom Wolfe suggested this as the next logical development in art. He also imagined eventually finding in a gallery canvases blank except for a few grayish scrawl lines left by applying very hard leaded graphite pencils. He was not happy about such developments.
One morning I took my sister to the High Museum in Atlanta. She called me over, pointed to a canvas, and just said “WHAT?” It was the barely perceptible pencil scrawls.
I said, “Someone’s been reading Tom Wolfe. I’ll tell you about it over lunch.”
