On Friday all the art from the L’Hotel got taken, because Georges Marciano, the owner of L’Hotel in Montreal, wasn’t able to pay his bills.
There were a couple of pieces of art that he owned that he had loaned to the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, I wonder how long they are going to stick around?
And do you think that the bailiffs were stymied by all the construction?
And what with all the talk about corruption in Montreal happening these days, I wonder if anyone at city hall or the museum cared that there was a lien on M. Marciano’s property when he proposed lending his property (because before he loaned the statues to the museum, he loaned them to the city first…) My take on the situation back in April 2010 here. Macleans take here.
