Well, the saga is over and it appears the Berkshire Museum will get the chance to sell off most of the 40 paintings. This is real sad. According to reports: The agreement states that the key work in the proposed sale, Norman Rockwell’s painting Shuffleton’s Barbershop, which Sotheby’s had estimated could sell for $30 million to $40, will be acquired for an undisclosed sum by an unnamed U.S. institution that will keep the work prominently on view. I wonder who that institution will be? Can anyone say — Crystal Bridges! At least that is my guess. We will soon see.
