MOMA Is Selling A Monet: Why?

New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) is sellingLes Peupliers à Giverny,’’ one of Monet’s 1887 depictions of poplar trees in the fields at the edge of his property in Giverny. The catalog at Sotheby’s, where the work is being auctioned, says it is being sold to “benefit the acquisitions fund.” But what work or works can the museum acquire instead that will prove in the future to be as valuable as this particular Monet?
