Fruit salad at the met: in the April 1989 issue, Anna Somers Cocks gave a withering reception to the Metropolitan Museum's 'Louis XIV State Bedroom'--perhaps the last gasp of the confected museum 'period room'. 562
Gauguin--and Zaha Hadid: a major exhibition on Gauguin and Impressionism at the Ordrupgaard collection in Copenhagen was overwhelmed by Zaha Hadid's unsympathetic new exhibition galleries, writes Martin Bailey. It should look better at the Kimbell. Bailey, Martin 1929

Inside a palace of wonders: the new permanent displays of renaissance and baroque art at the Wakers Art Museum, Baltimore, endeavour to recreate the way these works would originally have been displayed by collectors. As Dennis P. Weller discovers, this has involved the creation of a fictitous seventeenth-century collector of works of art and natural curiosities. Weller, Dennis P. 1558
John Flaxman's 'Adoration of the Magi' rediscovered: one of the most prolific and admired sculptors of the neo-classical era, John Flaxman ran a large studio and rarely carved or even finished the works produced under his name.

Bindman, David 2262

Rubens: the master butcher: the urgent physicality of the painter's early work mirrors the speed with which the National Gallery, London, has mounted 'Rubens: A Master in the Making', writes David Howarth, but has the artistic context been neglected in the haste? Howarth, David 1235
