Sarah Milroy on getting old and in the way


Last week, Ms. Milroy wrote a rather negative review about the Alex Colville: Return exhibition which is currently in Toronto, and then will be touring over the rest of the country. She spends 1,313 words (not enough in my mind) discussing things. My favorite words are: "...you have to admit that the wheels have fallen off and call for a taxi home. Sadly, the exhibition organizers missed the opportunity to make that judgment call."

The only reason I point out this article, is that it shows Colville getting hammered as he gets old. Over in New York, Childe Hassam seems to have suffered the same fate (albeit about eighty-years ago). Is this representative of how we treat our elders?
