Artsy Neighbors

Abby Goodnough at the New York Times writes on the expansion of the Gardner Museum here in the Fenway.

If a painting were stolen out of a contemporary art gallery where the walls are all white, you might say it’s a shame for that artwork. But the way that people who visit this place feel violated, it’s like somebody stole this art out of their own living room.

And, Holland Cotter previews the MFA’s Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice, opening today.
