Once, at a party in the mid-1980s, I asked Gracie Mansion, the Manhattan gallerist, if she would mind divulging her given name.
“This is the first time that a gallerist has been the head of a museum, so that was controversial,” one trustee said.
“We think that his work is most effectively shown when you get to see it in large groups,” said gallerist James Danziger.
He went on to thank his family, his gallerist, distributor, and paid tribute to artist Ian White.
