Subject: Art
Source: Boston Globe
Date: January through December 1998


The Boston Globe's series showing how plundered art and antiquities from Holocaust victims and from countries unable to police their architectural sites end up in prestigious museums in direct violation of international treaties and museums' own ethical policies. The series identifies a network of dealers who dealt in stolen artworks, pinpointing suspect paintings hanging in major American museums, and disclosing widespread negligence within the art world about the origin of works of art that routinely change hands for millions of dollars without any inquiry into the ownership chain of the works.
