The Art of the Steal

A really interesting film via Dan Silver:

This is a fascinating documentary film about the longstanding financial problems of the Barnes Foundation, a $25-billion collection of mostly Modernist and post-Impressionist artworks, and the foundation officers’ successful effort to break Albert C. Barnes’s will and move the collection from Lower Merion to downtown Philadelphia. The emphasis of the film is on the breaking of Barnes’ will.
