The press continues to speculate who will replace the Metropolitan Museum’s longest-serving director, Philippe de Montebello. Today’s New York Sun has the latest state-of-the-arts list, which drops Met president Emily Rafferty and the British Museum’s Neal MacGregor but adds the Met curator and Havemeyer descendent Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen and includes two Timothys: Timothy Potts of Scotland by way of the Kimball and Cleveland’s Timothy Rub. Funny how no one mentions that Montebello’s longevity is the exception for Met directors. The job has killed several of his predecessors. Ay, there’s the Rub. Stick that in your Potts and smoke it.
