In December, allegations of sexual harassment and crudity were leveled at artist Chuck Close, whose photographic work is the subject of a major retrospective now on view at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (through April 8). The following month, in response to the December allegations, the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., made the decision to postpone a planned Close exhibition then scheduled for May; it has since been postponed indefinitely.
