OHIO---The Toledo Museum of Art has decided to return four pieces of rare Indian artwork on display there to India after concluding that their provenance had been falsified or could not be verified. All four of the ancient objects had been purchased from Subhash Kapoor, a former New York art dealer who is awaiting trial in India. [link]
