Richard Rand 2.jpgTomorrow, Richard Rand, the senior curator of paintings and sculpture at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, will be receiving a singular honor: He will be introduced into France's Ordres des Arts et Lettres with the rank of Chevalier (Kinight).
Rand, pictured, is a brilliant scholar - he has organized exhitbiions and written authoritatively on French artists such as Fragonard, David, and Claude - and he's a very nice guy to boot. He's being recognized for his contribution to French culture. In receiving the award, he will be joining the ranks of Americans such as Paul Auster (the novelist and translator of French literature), Ornette Coleman, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, and Richard Meier.
