A number of pieces in the museum's collection could spend their life on loan--if the museum staff weren't careful about to whom and how often they say yes . Saint Sebastian Attended by Saint Irene (1625, oil on canvas), by the Dutch master Hendrick Terbrugghen (1588-1629), is on loan to two major exhibitions during 1996. During the summer the Terbrugghen was shown in Atlanta, one of 128 of the world's greatest masterpieces in the High Museum of Art's exhibition, Rings: Five Passions in World Art, held in conjunction with the Olympics. In October the painting will travel to the National Gallery of Art, and later to the Kimbell Art Museum, for the exhibition, Georges de la Tour and His World.
