The Courtier in The Federalist: Reviewing Marie Antoinette’s Favorite Painter At The Met

Over on The Federalist today, here’s my latest piece for them on a new exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and what it tells us both about Marie Antoinette’s favorite artist, and the dumbing down of one of America’s most prestigious cultural institutions.

My thanks to Ben Domenech, Joy Pullmann, and the team for another opportunity to share my thoughts with their readers.
