Sad news that the former Met curator and director of the Frick, Everett Fahy, has died. The New York Times has an obituary here, albeit with an unfortunate misprint at the end, describing an early 16th Century Italian painting (which Fahy had concluded was by Michelangelo) as a work by Velasquez.

The article concludes with a quote art history would do well to remember:

“With attributions, it’s not the number of people who agree with you, it’s the quality of their judgments.”
