Some stories we’ve been reading this week:
- A Pulitzer Prize-winning critic and the legendary Miss Manners on how to act in public spaces—including museums—in a digital age.
- An exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery marks the first time that all the drawings from Goya’s “Witches and Old Women” sketchbook have been shown together since their sale and dispersal in Paris in 1877. Conservators and curators spent months examining the sheets to determine the correct order.
- For more than three decades, a landlord refused to rent his storefront in Brooklyn. It wasn’t until after his death that it was discovered to be a secret art studio.
- This isn’t quite as secret, but deserves to be better known: the paintings of poet e.e. cummings.
