More on the Astor Painting

The Santa Fe New Mexican has a story today on the painting involved in the Brooke Astor lawsuit. The New Mexico connection is that the buyer of the painting was Santa Fe dealer Gerald Peters. The sales price on the 2002 sale to Peters was $10 million, but the painting was reportedly resold later for more than $20 million to an unnamed buyer. Earlier posts on this here and here. Peters made a previous appearance in the blog here.
