It's not uncommon for museums to encroach upon what used to be the exclusive turf of galleries, to indulge in a bit of reputation inflation by showcasing recent MFAs rather than waiting for them to season and mature.

AND Stanley Meisler's point in his review of Sargent's works ["Portrait of an Artist on Vacation," July 8] is? The exhibition is not in Los Angeles, not even in California. If I wanted an art history lesson, I would go to the library or the museum. STEPHANY YABLOW North Hollywood

Before taking a class during her senior year at Rosemead High School, Lisa Chan thought art history was nothing more than learning the difference between a Monet and Manet, a Picasso and Pissarro. But while earning an art history degree at UCLA last spring and interning at museums in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., Chan, 22, has discovered there's almost no end to where art history can lead. This summer, Chan was one of 12 undergraduates chosen for an internship with the J.
