If rockers can act in movies, if actors can model, if opera stars choose to release jazz records, and if stand-up comedians can land sitcoms, then I suppose there's no harm in an art historian deciding to address historiography with an exhibition of pictures. But don't expect more than primitivism:
"As an art historian, I went through our collection pulling out powerful and provocative images to see what they tell us about ourselves," he says. "I'm not trying to shove a point of view down anybody's throat. I want to encourage people to contemplate the realities of war."
Enjoy the piece: myself, I'll be busy painting museum-quality portraits.
