Jim Kempner's web series, "The Madness of Art," never fails to deliver a delicious assortment of art world inside jokes. The most recent installment, an episode titled "Don't Discount It," does not disappoint.

In it our favorite gallerist/comedian attempts to sell a painting to a well-endowed art collector who's eager to bargain with him. "How much is it?" and "Can we do [insert lower price here]?" seem to be the only phrases he's able to deliver.

In his usual Larry David-inspired antics, Kempner -- of course -- fails to sell a single painting. But the hilarious interactions that happen along the way are well worth the watch. Check it all out in the video above and let us know what you think the comments.
