Letter to ARC


Published before 2005

If the decision by the board was based on the same biased scolarship that Patrick Noon presented to the February Decorative Arts Council meeting, it is wrong. Your curators hypocritically accused Bouguereau, without documentary evidence of diminishing his original conception of Bohémienne to turn a quick Franc. The MIA's own lucre-inspired motivations were safely transposed to a dead painter, and the way cleared for a contemptible loss. Your public deserved better.
