Friday was the third and final day of the Rockefeller art sale. The sale totaled $832 million, and 22 records were set.
I'm surprised n_l didn't bid on the 256-piece Sevres dessert service commissioned by Napoleon.

One of Claude Monet's haystacks paintings, called Mueles (1890), sold at auction last night for $110.7 million. Sotheby's says it's a world auction record for Monet and the first Impressionist artwork to ever cross the $100 million threshold at auction.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to hear a case involving the descendants of a group of Jewish art dealers from Germany who say their ancestors were forced to sell a collection of religious art to the Nazi government in 1935.

Supreme Court sides with Germany in Nazi-era art dispute

https://apnews.com/article/business-us-supreme-court-lawsuits-courts-04734dea5cde6abc412da38d3ff7faa2

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the heirs of German citizens couldn't sue the German government in U.S. courts. It may be the correct ruling legally, but if the German government wanted to do the right thing, it would return the art. But who expects the German government to do the right thing?

Given that the decision was unanimous, it's clear the German heirs were seeking redress in an improper venue. The court merely asserted the obvious. Which means that headline is absolute horseshit. The court has sided with no one. What is it about journalists that makes me want to see them all whipped?

The court has sided with no one. What is it about journalists that makes me want to see them all whipped?

In the matter that was being disputed here, the Supreme Court did side with the German government.

The heirs argued that they could sue in U.S. court; the German gov't argued that they couldn't. The Supreme Court ruled for the German gov't in this issue. The appropriateness of the art sale was not the issue at hand. In the issue at hand, the court absolutely sided the German gov't. I see that as an accurate headline.

If the headline had said "U.S. Supreme Court Rules German Heirs Can't Bring Art Lawsuit Against German Government in U.S. Court," that would have been more detailed, but unnecessarily so. I think this headline is fine.
