The Art Loss Register and Antiquities

One year ago LM posted a piece on the Art Loss Register and Christie's. I wonder if the ALR read it.

The question is why the ALR did not appear to have spotted that Christie's was offering material identified from the Medici Dossier and the Becchina and Schinousa Archives. But perhaps they had.

The use of an unacknowledged antiquity linked to Robin Symes (via the Schinousa Archive) as the cover image for the Christie's sale catalogue suggests that the problem of toxic antiquities continues to fester.

What positive actions will the ALR take to reassure potential buyers?
