True Appears At Italian Art Trial

Ex-Getty curator Marion True appears in Rome for the start of her trial for trafficking in stolen antiquities. “True, together with art dealer Robert Hecht, denies two separate charges involving 35 artefacts bought between 1986 and the late 1990s. They include bronze Etruscan pieces, frescoes, and painted Greek Vessels. The Getty museum has stood by Ms True’s work. She left the court after the hearing without comment.”
