Do you like this story?
Most of you have already been keeping up with the sideline bet between the Indianapolis Museum of Art's Max Anderson and the New Orleans Museum of Art's E. John Bullard on who will win the Super Bowl game. Up for grabs? The IMA's Turner painting against NOMA's painting by Claude. For those of you who have not been keeping up you can catch the play by play, by Tyler Green of Modern Art Notes.
Sadly, Max and the IMA have lost the Super Bowl bet and will therefore be loaning its Turner Painting to the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Bravo to both Max Anderson and the IMA and to E. John Bullard and NOMA for making this entire dialog an entertaining one.
Bon Voyage Turner... You will be missed.
