Who will pass the test of time?

The Virgin Mother by Damien Hirst

From an interview with Charles Saatchi

Who has been described both as a 'supercollector' and as 'the most successful art dealer of our times'.

Looking ahead in 100 years time, how do you think British art of the early 21st century will be regarded? Who are the great artists who will pass the test of time?

CS: General art books dated 2105 will be as brutal about editing the late 20th century as they are about almost all other centuries. Every artist other than Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Donald Judd and Damien Hirst will be a footnote.
