Jeff Harrison roamed the upstairs galleries late last month at the Chrysler Museum of Art, stopping at a few of the dozens of works he acquired for the Norfolk attraction over his 33 years there.

The chief curator, who will retire June 30, paused at a 17th century Italian painting of card players by Giovanni Battista Boncori. He had spotted it in an auction catalog; it turned out to be a pair with the museum's Boncori painting of musicians.
