"Boo Hoo Barnes" (UPDATED)

The Art Market Monitor on some criticism of the Barnes it's hard to take seriously:  "Esplund complains that the new building contains a large open space that only seems to fulfill the function of providing an area for entertaining the wealthy while elegizing an exceedingly wealthy man’s determination to control his possessions in perpetuity. Go figure."

UPDATE:  Philadelphia Inquirer art critic Edward Sozanski reminds us that Barnes did not want "his collection to be shared with the general public."
