Getty lets her take fall, ex-curator says

Felch, J., and Frammolino, R. (2006) ‘Getty lets her take fall, ex-curator says’, Los Angeles Times, 29 December.

In a bitter letter to the J. Paul Getty Trust, former antiquities curator Marion True complained last week that the¬†institution has left her to “carry the burden” for its purchase of apparently looted ancient art.

True, on trial in Rome on charges of trafficking looted objects, wrote Dec. 18 that her superiors at the Getty¬†Museum were “fully aware of the risks” of buying antiquities and had approved the acquisitions.
