"In the early 1500s Albrecht Durer was perhaps the most famous artist in northern Europe. A recent article in The Economist reports that he was also a shrewd businessman. In today’s world of popular artists -- from Steven Spielberg to Lady Gaga -- the pairing of business and 'entertainment,' if regretted by some, is noncontroversial. But many still see the true artist and the profit-seeking business person as coming from radically different places." (01/10/12)
