"Gross" Thoughts (UPDATED)

Reaction to last week's "Gross Clinic" denouement from Richard Lacayo ("there's one last piece of this puzzle that doesn't make for a happy ending. The Cello Player, the Eakins canvas sold by the Pennsylvania Academy [to help pay for The Gross Clinic], disappeared into a private sale. There's no telling when or if it will ever be on public view again, though the anonymous buyer reportedly agreed to lend it back to the Academy occasionally") and Lee Rosenbaum ("the sale was inappropriate but executed in the most responsible way possible, under the circumstances").

UPDATE: Further thoughts from Lee.
