“never had such a picture moved and disturbed the Australian public”

Abbott's Bluepoles No2_webI’m moved and disturbed by the picture alright.
With what’s going on in the political picture at present, it’s more disturbing than anything anyone felt when confronted by a mere painting purchase in 1973: but the furore will die down faster.

the quote was from art historian Patrick McCaughey back when the Jackson Pollock Blue Poles purchase was made by NGA.
