Panama Papers Impact on Art

Have you seen the website panamapapers.icij.org. If you have you know how awesome it is to read all these secrets. The internet was built for such events, I love it.

What the implications are, I do not know however I’d like to take a moment and empathize with the victims in Uganda.

I came across this statement on the website, “Locked in the files of a Panama law firm are the answers to mysteries involving Van Goghs, Picassos, Rembrandts and other masterworks.”

What secrets are these?  I can only imagine an illegal art trade of lost art during catastrophic events such as the world wars.  Have you seen that awesome George Clooney movie The Monuments of Men. What if by some coincidence someone recovered all these paintings and ancient sculptures that were stolen by Nazi Germany. What if these art collections are in the possession of people named in the Panama Papers?

Only time will tell, the full list comes out in May. Be sure to visit my blog again for other interesting and less speculative articles.
