    I'm now intrigued.

    I somehow completely missed the backstory on this.

    I'm assuming there was significant drama, with some furrowed brows and wringing of hands

    .... but was there any real mayhem, or blood-spatter? (here's hoping)

    Awaiting enlightenment.

    No drama. Just a lifestyle decision.

    That's a shame. Maybe it could work as a TV sitcom. ..... on cable, small markets

    Unfortunately, this story is behind the NY Times paywall.

    It is a well-researched story about a 15 year old business that was created to serve artists, including photographers, and that is rapidly going south. The originator of the business now denies that he has a controlling interest, refuses to say who runs it and won't say whether the art works in its possession, which have been moved around a lot and are now apparently in upstate New York and Germany, are insured.

    The story implicates David Ross, former director of the Whitney Museum, as well as other art world high fliers, who have been heading for the exits.

    Well worth reading. It's quite the cautionary tale.
