A book about the Getty Villa and corruption in the antiquities market has been published, and the New York Review of Books has a review. Contrasting the moralistic tone of the book itself, it follows the vein of the New Yorker article that ran before charges against the museum's then-curator, Marion True, were dropped.

For the earlier article, the New Yorker included a portrait of True photographed by Steven Pyke, which I'd love to include here if I could only find a full-page-sized version like the one I saw. At any rate, the book is called Chasing Aphrodite: The Hunt for Looted Antiquities at the World’s Richest Museum

  1. It is good to know that some people are doing their best to get back these stolen artifacts that are a great part of our civilization's history. What happened to Getty Villa was sad.
