James Cuno on wbur

James Cuno was interviewed for the "Here & Now" show on (Wednesday, August 20, 2008). The main themes were:
Cuno noted that the Euphronios krater was made in Greece (or more precisely Athens) and transported to Etruria (in Italy) hinting that the movement of objects happened in the ancient world. However he failed to address (or more precisely the interviewer did not ask the question) the issue of objects being looted from archaeological sites and then sold to North American museums.

The closing question asked about the replacement for Philippe de Montebello. "I remain committed to the Art Institute of Chicago".
