The Art Fund has published an interesting report on the state of museum acquisitions in the UK, or rather the lack of them. It's written by the historian Sir David Cannadine, and is well worth reading, here. But it misses the goal a few times, and presents a more dire view of the situation than is justified. I'll write more about it soon.
