And what does that matter who commissioned it?  It was such a great piece of art that the king made it a national treasure using government money.


So US government policy in the 21st century should devolve around what kings did hundreds of years ago?  Actually, the comparison is apt:  The king looted peasants so that he could furnish and decorate elaborate palaces.  Now, libs want to loot the paychecks of a coal miner in Kentucky and a waitress in Pennsylvania to finance lib propaganda posing as "art".

The point is that advanced civilizations cherish the arts and humanities and use the national treasury in support.


You're making an assertion without any supporting arguments.  The issue is not that art should be created, but whether government should finance it, especially the obnoxious faux art paid for by the NEA.
