I am more interested in the way he created an atmosphere of creativity around him, Nico and the velvet underpants, Lou Reed, and all those Boho's floating around at that time in The Factory. I certainly don't think he was a master, but he was very clever at self promotion and I find that interesting.

Turner whether intentionally or not painted quite romantic images of the new industrial world, while Warhol's industrial world is not so much clinical as lifeless.

I'm totally for Pollock. His work grabs you and carries you away in the dance.

Rothko seems overhyped to me. As if everyone is afraid to admit they don't see anything and hide it by extolling his concepts. The emperor has no clothes.

"The industrial becomes the sublime." Yep. All this science become art (or art become science) is sequeing peculiarly with my current speculations on agricultural ecology. Science and art and growing food can form a rather satisfying threesome, though it wasn't obvious until now. Shocked
