We’re waiting for our copy of Michael Gross’s Rogue’s Gallery to read, we’re going back through Calvin Tompkins’s Merchants and Masterpieces and maybe we’ll look at Thomas Hoving’s Making the Mummies Dance. Gross isn’t going to sit around waiting for action, so today we’ve got a little Page Six action–with an emphasis on little because the friction described between Hoving and de Montebello is mild indeed–which New York Mag picks up and tries to breathe a little life into but doesn’t add anything. Will Gross reveal all the Met’s secrets? We’ll see.
