I'd concur, but then what would one say of the Sistine Chapel or many other "public" places?

Maybe it is the "intinerance"? Maybe art simply needs a permanent local (whether a home, gallery or exhibit hall) instead of being transient?

I'd say if the pontiff would just agree to let me live there, like I keep asking, all would be well.

I'll have my babushka grandmother in Cleveland light a candle for your request. She has connections.

There is a big difference between seeing art in a museum and on one's own walls. In reference to the Why Do You Collect? thread, this was very dramatically illustrated to me when I saw the 20-th century German exhibit at MoMA a few weeks ago. On one wall there were about 40-50 drawings, just about as much work as I have in my entire collection, and that was only a fraction of the exhibit. At MoMA I could barely take in more than a few of the pieces, but at home I can live with each and every piece I've bought and get to know every nook and cranny. The sheer volume of work in a museum works against close attention to any one piece.
