Getty Givebacks

This just in, from Maria Petrakis in Athens for Bloomberg:

The J. Paul Getty Museum's director, Michael Brand, will recommend the return of some antiquities to Greece following talks with Greek officials in Athens.

Earlier today, Getty director Michael Brand met with Greek Culture Minister George Voulgarakis, to discuss Greece's claims.

Some of the most savvy art-media types I know don't realize that you can get free access (without the onerous subscription fee) to Bloomberg's cultural content just by going to Bloomberg.com, clicking "News & Commentary" (at the top), and then "Culture" (in the lefthand column).

There you can enjoy theater reviews by John Simon, architectural commentary by James Russell and some great coverage on the antiquities mess by Vernon Silver from Italy.
