One of my goals for the New Year is to write blog posts in a timelier manner; like attempt to write about shows before they close. That being said, I have one more post on an LA exhibition that has already closed. Opps.
Christopher Knight was critical of the show, mostly because it’s a collector’s show. Regardless of the quality, or significance of the works in the show (the Huntington proclaimed the collection is, “one of the finest private collections of French and Italian bronze sculptures”), the education that supplemented the show justified it completely in my mind. The Huntington’s decision to host this traveling show fits its own collections and programming. Several Huntington bronzes and a whole room of books from the library supplemented the show.
