Museum sends famous Cupid painting to Minneapolis PARIS -- The Louvre Museum has sent it's famous 'Cupid and Pschye'
painting to a Minneapolis museum for a show, just in time for Valentine's
Day. The painting depicts a beautiful young woman being woed by
winged Cupid. The painting, from 1798, is often reproduced for the
Louvre's souvenior shops. The painting by Baron Francois Gerard
usually hangs in a spot in the Paris musuem near the Mona Lisa.
It's the first time it has been shown in the United States. In exchange
for the Cupid painting, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts sent a
neoclassical painting by Girodet to Paris. It's called "Mademoiselle
Lange as Danae" and was painted in 1799.
stolen artwork is recovered
-- The FBI said that it has recovered additional pieces from a $4
million trove of art that was stolen four years ago from storage
in Bridgeton. But authorities are not revealing where the loot was
found. Officials said they recently discovered 21 paintings and
other pieces of art that had been taken from the collection of David
and Diane Harter of Florida in 2002. In addition, the FBI said it
turned up 12 other works suspected of having been stolen and that
agents are attempting to identify the owners.
museum's giveback of art to Italy brings a reward
ROME -- New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art will return 21 looted
artifacts to Italy in exchange for loans of other treasures in a
deal that the Italians called a model for other museums with stolen
goods in their collections. Met chief Philippe de Montebello said
the agreement with officials from the Italian Culture Ministry "corrects
a number of improprieties and errors committed in the past"
and will encourage museums to put in place new legal and ethical
measures. The deal calls for the Met to return the Euphronios Krater,
a 6th-century B.C. painted vase that is widely regarded as one of
the finest examples of its kind. The museum bought the vase from
an American art dealer for $1 million in 1972. Italy says it was
stolen from a site near Rome. The Met agreed to give it back to
Italy by Jan. 15, 2008. In exchange for the vase and other antiquities,
Italy will loan the Met objects of "equal beauty and historical
and cultural significance," and the two sides will cooperate
on future excavations, research and restoration work.
art museum plan gets City Council's OK
TAMPA -- Plans to relocate the Tampa Museum of Art to another nearby
building moved a giant step closer. The Tampa City Council approved
Mayor Pam Iorio's request to move the museum to the Pavilion building,
next to Rivergate Tower at 400 N. Ashley Drive. The museum's board
of trustees approved the plan Feb. 15. The council's vote was 5-1
in favor of the museum plan, with Councilwoman Rose Ferlita being
the only dissenting vote. Councilwoman Gwen Miller was absent from
the meeting. The City of Tampa and the museum signed a letter of
intent with the building's owner, America's Capital Partners, to
buy the 28,000-square-foot Pavilion for $5.7 million. In exchange,
ACP would buy the building's parking deck from the city for $4.5
million. The city has agreed to allocate $20 million of Community
Investment Tax funds for the project. Iorio has set a May 1 deadline
to complete all necessary transactions.
