ArtInfo's Benjamin Genocchio raves about the expanded MMFA

Benjamin Genocchio for ArtInfo has done a flattering and intelligent critique of the new wing of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.  The photo above is from the ArtInfo website; the building on the left is the one that was robbed in 1972.  One of the questions about Canada's largest art theft could be how it affected the museum in Montreal? Well, after closing for three years to renovate, and moving from a fairly Anglophile base some 150 years ago to a bilingual institution provides inexpensive access to Canadian and European art -- it's doing just fine, merci beaucoup!
