Richard Lubin, Sandra Moose, and Rose-Marie van Otterloo write, on behalf of the board of trustees of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston: Sebastian Smee takes issue with 26 paintings on loan. However, he fails to mention the 21,000 works on view at the MFA, which themselves represent only a small percentage of the museum’s global collections. Loans and touring exhibitions enable us to share our works with the world and rotate others in the MFA’s 130 galleries.
