The new Melania Trump statue in Slovenia as interpreted by art experts

Quartz - 07-21


The new statue of Melania Trump in Slovenia has been widely mocked. It's a blunt and crude tribute to a first lady whose face is all sharp angles, true. But I talked to art professors who put the work in perspective. Through their explanations, examining the statue with trained eyes and in the context of art history, it's easy to see how someday this work may be viewed as great.
