Detroit Should Sell Off Its Museum's Art, Writes Peter Schjeldahl
"The prospective departure of the D.I.A.'s touchstones by Jan van Eyck, Fra Angelico, Bellini, Titian, Rembrandt, Velásquez, Brueghel, Goya, Cézanne, and van Gogh ... thus suggests intolerable violence to the very soul of Detroit's suffering body. It's a strong argument, other things being equal; but other things are not."
