Blake Gopnik has a really excellent article about Diane Arbus retrospective currently on exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It is in today's Sunday Arts. Don't miss it!

By the way, I have a bitch with the way the Post does the byline on some of their employees. They list Gopnik as Washington Post Staff Writer, which is the same way they list everyone else, including the guy who writes the obituaries (which by the way is what Gopnik's predecessor did before being promoted to being an art critic). Blake Gopnik deserves the recognition of his pulpit, and should be listed as Chief Art Critic or Senior Art Critic or whatever his true title is.

Every other major newspaper that I can think of identifies the real title of their writers (when they have one). This seems like simple lazyness on the part of the Post, unless it has something to do with some ridiculous union issue.

If anyone from the Post reads this BLOG, I would appreciate an explanation to clarify the point. Email me.
