Thanks to an invitation from the Canadian Art Museum Directors Organization
to give a talk on the art market -- I suggested that it was all a Ponzi scheme, with taxpayer-supported museums playing the part of the "greatest fool," which seemed to go over well enough with the populist Canadians -- I was able to undertake a whirlwind tour of Montreal, the second-largest French-speaking city in the world (after Paris). So many French, so close to the U.S.! Don’t tell the Republicans.
