My Public Radio Commentary on the Philadelphia Museum’s Eakins Disposals

You can hear my Philadelphia Public Radio soundbite on the disposal of three Eakinses by the Philadelphia Museum here. They did use my comment that I thought the sale was inappropriate but executed in the most responsible way possible, under the circumstances. This was followed by museum director Anne d’Harnoncourt‘s observation that “you don’t part with anything by Eakins eagerly.”

What you don’t hear in this very fleeting WHYY radio segment is what I said about WHY this sale was inappropriate.

More on that, COMING SOON.
