Things like this make me worry that in the future, modernist jerks will spread like a cancer and take over the Getty. I think the Getty owns 5 Cézanne paintings (I doubt they display all of them though) and only one Bouguereau. I would have them sell all the Cézannes and buy more 19th century art. Does anybody know if the Getty organization has some kind of rules which prevent them from turning into another modern trash dump? Since virtually all the art they have is classical, I don't think J. Paul Getty would approve of that happening.
