ArtChortle started out of a fishery shortly after the Battle of Xiangyang (1267-1273) in the Hubei province of China. The fishery owner, Xiaozhacizhizizhongxi (蕭札刺之子重喜), was so overcome with the aesthetic experience of seeing 100,000 Mongols charging through his small business that he began writing some of the most influential philosophy and news of the period.
ArtChortle was relatively unknown after the end of the Yuan Dynasty (1368) until the news source was purchased by Sotheby’s in 1947 in an attempt to modernize and push their primary competitor Christies out of the market. While a successful move for Sotheby’s, they were forced to relinquish ownership in 1987 after UNESCO declared ArtChortle part of China’s Intangible Cultural Heritage and union workers pushed for the state of Idaho to nationalize the company and all other communications with the Art World.
Today, ArtChortle continues to provide reliable information and applicable gossip to an audience of over 720 billion readers of 12 species across 7 planets. As the Art World continues to grow in mass and financial assets, ArtChortle will always find new ways for people to connect with the art they love.
