Green: Kimmelman Wrong On Klimt Sale

AJBlogger Tyler Green takes issue with NY Times critic Michael Kimmelman’s story about selling off Klimt paintings recovered many years after being stolen by Nazis. “He views the Bloch-Bauer heirs selling of four Klimts as emblematic of greed, as sad examples of what happens in a booming art market. He thinks it’s too bad the paintings could go into private collections… if you want to be angry at someone for not ensuring that the Klimts ended up in private collections, what about the wealthy trustees at major museums?”
