- To educate and inform members on policies and laws that affects the international movement of cultural property
Is this Joseph Lewis II the same one who loaned Egyptian material to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts? And the same one who loaned Egyptian material to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts (as spotted by Lee Rosenbaum)? And the same Joseph Lewis II who donated material to the Michael C. Carlos Museum (an institution which has been less than forthcoming about the acquisitions)?
Is this the same individual who was linked to the Egyptian coffin that was intercepted in Miami where it was described as 'agricultural products' after being shipped by a Barcelona galerista? (For corrected name.)
And is this the same collector who was named in the Khouli case? (See also Rick St Hilaire with update.)
If the Treasurer of ADCAEA is indeed the collector of Egyptian antiquities, please could ADCAEA release full details (including authenticated collecting histories) of all the donations and loans made by this individual?
After all, ADCAEA has as another of its aims:
- To promote awareness and understanding of ancient and ethnographic art collecting through open communication with members and the public.
