De Montebello/Hoving Contretemps
The always provocative Tom Hoving caught up with his successor as director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philippe de Montebello, right after PdM's brilliantly persuasive presentation (more on that in future posts).
TOM HOVING: You are not dynamic enough.
PHILIPPE DE MONTEBELLO: You used to be too dynamic.
That says it all.
