Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melemid

I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone looking for subject matter, but Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melemid’s “The Most Wanted Paintings” project sure does make for an interesting experiment.  

The pair commissioned surveys in multiple countries to determine what qualities the general public believed would constitute the most and least desirable works of art, then created those very paintings.  I think the survey results are actually more interesting than the paintings, but I suppose that was to be expected.
