Jerry Saltz says, "Ugh."

I hate them for what they do to art, for the bad magic of making mysterious powerful things turn into numbers.

I think Mr. Saltz is right to be upset that historically important works are being sequestered by the rich.

I don't think the money hype changes the work irretrievably. It does hurt the art world, in that it encourages more speculative predators into what should otherwise be a creative community.
