I must eschew my usual long-windedness because I have to go to a funeral and just got some very depressing news, but such is life.
1. No. There was no monetary reward for those cave painters or for the guys what illuminated the Book of Kells, and they made art OK. It would, however, eliminate the boot-licking suck-up corporate artist and cut down on travelling exhibitions sponsored by the Ford Foundation if it were wiped out.
2. Even Barry McGee and Rigo have representation, so I suppose so. But, things would probably progress just as well without them. Just like you don't need a church to commune with the spirit or a comfortable mattress on which to sleep or a trap to catch a rat, you don't need a broker for any aspect of art.
3. d. Art doesn't need brokers because it has always existed and always will.
You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...
