I was more surprised by his response to those paintings thinking they were some kind of "work of a genius" and the fact that he couldn't see that they were all the same :-)
Why being surprised? Thatīs a common and well known pattern for art - you just need a "name" and most (if not all) fans will follow blindly for anything coming up.
For instance, "Bach" or "Keith Jarrett" : In most places you canīt say something different things than "He or his music was just genius" if you donīt want to get a nice shitstorm - Those are seem as "untouchable" heroes
Being critical is something "alien" and not much appreciated in society at these days. Being uniform is the key to attract most value and "Likes"
