Michael Granberry reports in the Dallas Morning News that the DMA isn’t going to get the expensive Leonardo after all; (insert sigh, with relief, or disappointment, depending.) WHAT NOW?- it’s clear that the museum has, potentially, access to several tens of millions of dollars to acquire art, if donors think it’s worth it. Certainly enough, intelligently spent, to put the museum on the map somehow, even if not as the owner of one of the few Da Vinci’s in the world. Let’s all think about it.
