THE BLOCKBUSTER MYSTERY

Picasso & McQueen
What’s a “blockbuster” exhibition? The answer is important, especially now when money is tight.
I’ve been musing about this question since I saw “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The show debuted in Paris at the Louvre, and appears soon at the Detroit Institute of Arts, opening Nov. 20, 2011.
