Art and Antiquities in the News


August 9, 2012 at 11:19:07 PM

Perhaps because it’s the slow summer season, art and antiquities have been very much in the news – well at least in the NYT.  So, for your beach reading pleasure, we refer you to:
In the first article entitled “<a href="">The Curse of the Outcast Artifact</a>,  the NYT reports on the problems in donating unprovenanced artifacts – which by some estimates may include more than 111,900 objects in private hands.
In the second article entitled “<a href="">Ruling on Artistic Authenticity: The Market vs. the Law</a>”, the NYT reports on a growing trend of letting judges and juries decide whether the painting at issue is “<a href="">the real McCoy</a>.”
