Me or them? Stupid? Or just clueless?
A small and quick hit. On artnet.com they have an article written by Charlie Finch called Mad Money. The first sentence reads "Last Saturday we journeyed to Greenberg Van Doren Gallery's gorgeous Fifth Avenue space for a breakfast viewing of Lane Twitchell's sold-out show." Which is illustrated with the picture above (courtesy artnet.com and I assume the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery). Now I for one am a big fan of windows in galleries and natural light. But I find it interesting that they would choose to use a photo with a shadow across the painting to illustrate how "nice" the exhibition is - which is more important, the art, or the skylight? And, isn't the first rule of preservation No Direct Sunlight?
