Cuno Controversy

Art Institute of Chicago (and former Courtauld) Director James Cuno's new book Who Owns Antiquity? Museums and the Battle Over Our Ancient Heritage has been causing a bit of an uproar. Critic Lee Rosenbaum responded scathingly on her blog CultureGrrl a few days ago. The best response yet has come from the Times today, in an article well worth a read here.
