GP602 - Museum Field Trip


Before a hushed audience at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), our show host Gerald Everett Jones discloses secrets behind The Baptism by 19th century painter Julius Leblanc Stewart.

Gerald Everett Jones is author of Bonfire of the Vanderbilts, which tells the secrets behind this painting.

The painting, which LACMA now owns, shows a christening in a plush private parlor, attended by 21 people. The portraits are so realistic, the individuals should be recognizable. For more than a century, the rumor in the art world has been this is a Vanderbilt family event. However, the heirs and the curators of their estates all deny any association with the painting.

Gerald's original research discloses why a bitter feud between Cornelius Vanderbilt II and banker J. P. Morgan is at the heart of the matter. He fictionalized this sensational story in Bonfire of the Vanderbilts.

Are the indie bookstores, in fact, making a comeback? Jack responds to our questions, including:

  1. If I told you I planned to open a new indie bookstore, what advice would you give me?
  2. What types of books did your customers want?
  3. The Borders bookstore chain was built on a new approach to computerized inventory. Do you think that was a good idea?
  4. What about events? Poetry, book signings, concerts, even community events like clubs and grass-roots politics. Should a bookstore promote those?
  5. Should an author plan to do bookstore signings and readings? Are those relevant anymore?
  6. Do you have an opinion about Amazon’s plans to open retail bookstores that have automated cashier stations?
  7. What’s your next business venture?
