China Comes to America
The Wall Street Journal reports on Chinese art collectors coming to America to buy up art long held in this country. The article also notes that American collectors became repositories of knowledge about Chinese art lost in China itself during Communism's darkest periods. Left unsaid is the impact of U.S. import restrictions on the ability of Americans to replace that which has been repatriated by sale to China.
