“Even after John Elderfield retired in 2007 as chief curator in the department of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, he has continued to make his mark there. This year he organized the blockbuster de Kooning retrospective, which closes on Jan. 9. Now, though he says he will continue to organize shows, he is becoming a senior adviser to Art.sy, an art search engine that has been in the works for the last two years. Sebastian Cwilich, Art.sy’s chief operating officer, said that Mr. Elderfield would help the Web site on art-historical matters and get museums excited about making parts of their collections accessible on Art.sy. The site, which bills itself as the Google of the art world, is poised to be unveiled this spring.”
