Because who needs another Renoir, right?
How come no one seems to worry about nervous, fleeing donors when a museum ships a work like this off to Maastricht for sale at $15 million?
Why wouldn't somebody say, Why should I give this to you? What guarantee do I have that you're not going to sell this tomorrow?
How is it that only some sales have a chilling effect on future donations?
It's almost as if the whole thing is an exercise in smoke and mirrors.
