Looks like the Metropolitan Museum of Art is doing more than shrinking staff and closing stores to make up for its recession-ravaged endowment. Doyle New York, the auctioneers, just announced a September 14th sale of Asian Art from the museum. No online catalogue is yet available, but the email flyer features a model of a Japanese pagoda given to the museum by the Estate of Mrs. E. H. Harriman.
