With Charles Saumarez Smith leaving London's National Gallery, it seemed only natural to ask Museum of Fine Arts director Malcolm Rogers if he still longed for the post.
Remember, he spent nine years as deputy director of the National Portrait Gallery before being passed over for the top job. That rejection led to his search abroad, and his MFA gig.
Here's what Rogers had to say, through an MFA spokesperson:
"The National Gallery was my dream job … until I came to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston! The MFA is going through one of the most exciting times in its history. Our Building Project, designed by the world-renowned architectural firm, Foster & Partners, will transform the MFA for visitors of today and future generations. I am honored to be at the MFA and this is where I want to be. I’m here for the long haul."
