- 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).
