Today's Salander News

ARTINFO's Andrew Goldstein reports that the New York state court today stayed all claims against Larry Salander because of the bankruptcy petition he's filed. The next hearing in the bankruptcy case is scheduled for the end of next week.

And in today's New York Times, James Barron took a closer look at one of the many Salander-related claims, this one brought in federal court by two artists and two artists' estates, not against Salander or his gallery but, instead, against a gallery in Rome. They claim that, without their permission, Salander-O'Reilly purported to transfer ownership of more than 50 of their works to settle a $5 million debt to the Italian gallery.
