Re: [Czechlist] catalogue
> How about "Courtesy of (the author)"?'Courtesy of ...' would be appropriate where the artist has given
permission for a work in his possession to be used (e.g. in a magazine),
but not, I don't think, where he has actually donated the work.
PS I'm sorry if this point has already been made, but yahoogroups seems
to be operating about three hours behind schedule at the moment (at least,
it was yesterday).
PPS Tony, I think Jamie must be away at the moment.
- Thanks, everyone, for the help.
I'm very pleased to have my own feelings confirmed so clearly (author,
auteur, gift vs. donation etc.) I have printed your messages to use as
points in the debate with the curator - a classic example of someone who's
learned enough English to comment, but not enough to understand either
context or the fact that a formulation's appearance in a previous document
is far from being a guarantee of its correctness, or even its existence....
Shame to miss Jamie, since he seems to have a great deal of 'hands-on'
experience in the art catalogue/gallery field (thanks for the info, Simon).
