July 2011 – The following message comes from Amy Poster, Former Curator of Asian Art, Brooklyn Museum and friend of Bertram Schaffner’s:

Dear Friends,

I wanted to let you know about the wonderful exhibition of Indian art, organized at the Brooklyn Museum by Joan Cummins, Lisa and Bernard Selz Curator of Asian Art. Not only are there two impressive objects donated by Bert in the exhibition, but the Museum has very thoughtfully dedicated the exhibition to Bert’s memory. I hope you will pass this along to your friends, family and colleagues who knew Bert, along with Holland Cotter’s review in Friday, July 8th NY Times:


With best wishes,
Amy Poster
