The Academy and the Museum

Nexus Lecture Philippe de Montebello

As Director Emeritus of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Philippe de Montebello was the judge of art from all ages and cultures. What makes a good work of art? How can we recognise it? And how should a museum treat its art works, its visitors and its financers? How elitist or how democratic ought it to be? And how does it relate to the academic world?
