The usefulness of Notable Acquisitions, now in its third year of publication, rests upon not only its providing an illustrated record and an informative survey of curatorial ambition and resourcefulness in the acquisition of works of art, but also its displaying the generosity of those friends of the Museum without whom this publication would have, in many areas, fallen considerably short of being notable. Indeed, this issue of Notable Acquisitions, no less than its predecessors, reflects an acquisitions policy determined as much by happenstance as by governance, not so much because of the lack of availability of exceptional works of art as by the capricious nature of the art market and the lamentable inadequacy of the Museum’s unrestricted funds.
